Description - Embodiment: Clinical, Critical and Cultural Perspectives on Health and Illness by Malcolm Maclachlan

This book lucidly illustrates why neither a simplistic mind-body dichotomy, nor the parallelism of the biopsychosocial model, sufficiently captures people's experience of being a body. Such experience is most salient when the body is in some way distressed, diseased, disordered, disabled or dismembered. Adding to the intriguing sociological and philosophical literature on embodiment, the book illustrates how such a seemingly abstract term has tremendous clinical significance to many people's experience.
