Abstract: First paragraph: When all the data and arguments are in, will the recent flurry of work in embodied cognition deliver a revolutionary paradigm shift in the sciences and philosophy of mind? Or will it be a case of business as usual in the mind-targeting laboratories and armchairs around the globe? Or is the most likely outcome a reformist tweak in which embodied cognition research is recognized as making genuine and important methodological or orienting contributions to cognitive science, while leaving the most fundamental conceptual foundations of the field intact – as Rupert nicely puts it in his sobering set of conclusions regarding the revolutionary implications of embodied approaches in general, ‘more of a nudging than a coup’ (Rupert 2009: 242)?
