Tversky Proposes ‘Audacious’ Theory of Spatial Thinking

In Mind in Motion: How Action Shapes Thought, published June 21, APS Immediate Past-President Barbara Tversky takes a wide-ranging look at the connection between movement and thinking. As she explains in the book’s introduction, “the premise is audacious: Spatial thinking, rooted in perception of space and action in it, is the foundation for all thought. The foundation, not the entire edifice.”

Listen to Barbara Tversky discuss the book in a podcast interview with the Big Think: bigthink.com/podcast/world-makes-mind-with-barbara-tversky.
