Embodied Cognition and Cinema

Edited by Maarten Coignarts and Peter Kravanja

Leuven University Press


381 pages




Specialists in such areas of film as music, sound design, narrative, and film type explore how the concept of embodied cognition can inform the scientific study of film and visual culture. They cover film form and embodied cognition, cinematic empathy: on embodied simulation mechanisms and the viewer, and from embodied meaning to abstract thought. Among specific topics are film narrative and embodied cognition: the impact of image schemas on narrative form, the floating world: film narrative and viewer diakrisis, art in noise: an embodied simulation account of cinematic sound design, films and embodied metaphors of emotion, embodied cinematic subjectivity: metaphorical and metonymical modes of character perception in film, and cognitive semiotics revisited: reframing the frame.
