The Philosopher’s Magazine: Touch

A couple of years ago Julian Baggini, author of a large number of popular philosophy books and the editor of The Philosopher’s Magazine  asked me to contribute an essay for a special issue on the senses. Obviously I would be writing on touch. The link is posted here because it works as an overview of some of the research I’m most interested in, and ideas from this crop up in other talks and presentations in more detail. In other words, this works as a map of the tactile terrain of thinking.

The article is available here as well as in the print version, issue 45 (2009).
