MWP Video 2b: Embodied meaning and scepticism

How a new way of understanding meaning can revolutionise our thinking. The embodied meaning thesis of George Lakoff and Mark Johnson shows that meaning depends on individual embodied experience. Those who believe that meaning depends on belief have got things the wrong way round – which is what makes it clear that absolute beliefs are deluded. Embodied meaning thus supports scepticism. This is part of the set of Middle Way Philosophy introductory videos, and is tributary to video 2 on scepticism.
