Why use bodies at all

A lot of research is being conducted on cognition; on human cognition as well as on robotic cognition. From the classical or Cartesian perspective, cognition and the body on which the cognition operates are two separate entities. In this paper Wouter and I point out that not only the body is needed for cognition, but moreover that cognition should be seen as an integrated part of the body.
