The Habit Body50 Concepts for a Critical* Phenomenology (2020)
A phenomenological approach to the habit body as both motor and perceptual is provided. The moving body inhabits or takes up a meaning that is significant not to the mind but to the body. Ways of perceiving and encountering others are also governed by the habit body. Racialization, disability, sexism as habits are thus investigated as meanings for the body rather than the intellect.
