Chapter 3. Kinesthetic memory
This essay expands and broadens a 2003 article on kinesthetic memory. It does so by critically examining currently favored taxonomies of memory as put forward by scientists, philosophers, and neuroscientists, and, in turn, by presenting a phenomenological perspective on body memory based on investigations by a Jungian analyst/phenomenological philosopher. The perspective brings to light highly complex and subtle dimensions of body memory, thus challenging us to enrich our understanding of body memory by turning studious attention to experience and actively investigating living experiences of body memory.
