What People are saying about this
"Original and detailed phenomenology of the sort that philosophers such as Husserl and Merleau-Ponty promised but seldom carried out. [Sudnow's] minute observations are astounding. This book is a great contribution to our understanding of embodied knowhow and to a foundation of a method for learning more." Hubert L.
Dreyfus, Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Berkeley
