  • Osborne Wiggins
Part of the Contributions to Phenomenology book series (CTPH, volume 16)

Both emphasize the role of the embodied mind in constituting a meaningful world, both emphasize the primacy of preconceptual experience, and both approaches view language, logic, and mathematics as constructed on the basis of preconceptual typifications.
