Contributors from philosophy, linguistics, art history, and ancient studies explore how the entangled and embodied nature of image and language allows people to symbolically articulate the world and their experiences in a great variety of forms. They lay the foundation for a new cultural anthropology of symbolic processes. In sections on original gestures, articulating processes, and schemata in action, they discuss such aspects as early forms of articulation, language and image as gesture and articulation, habit and the symbolic process, and ancient articulation: antique schemata in modern art and dance.
