Interview with Mark L. Johnson. FIGURE / GROUND COMMUNICATION (2011).

The Figure/Ground Communication scholarly interview series continues with an in-depth conversation with Mark L. Johnson - Knight Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Oregon. Professor Johnson is well-known for contributions to embodied philosophy, cognitive science and cognitive linguistics, some of which he has co-authored with George Lakoff such as Metaphors We Live By and Philosophy in the Flesh: the Embodied Mind and its Challenge to Western Thought (Basic Books, 1999). His latest book, The Meaning of the Body: Aesthetics of Human Understanding (Chicago, 2007), further investigates aspects of embodied meaning and cognition that have traditionally been ignored or under-valued in mainstream philosophy.
