The Fast Diet: The Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer by Michael Mosley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dietary self-experimentation. It’s fun! Or at least, for some reason, I find it so. The latest fad is intermittent fasting. As usual I’m a bit late to the party, but so far so good.

Review: The Body in the Mind: The Bodily Basis of Meaning, Imagination, and Reason

The Body in the Mind: The Bodily Basis of Meaning, Imagination, and Reason
The Body in the Mind: The Bodily Basis of Meaning, Imagination, and Reason by Mark Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Johnson explores the cognitive role of “image schemata”, which are recurring patterns and structures in our minds and which determine how we perceive and interpret our experience of the world. They also allow us to share meanings with each other as the schemata are derived from our bodily experience of functioning in the world and the similarity of our bodies and cultures lead us to have many of the same schemata in common.
