relates to the senses we most commonly associate with body knowing: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell.
She devotes more space to the so-called perceptual approach that explains first-person reference in terms of the specific manner in which we ate self-aware, say, through quasi-perceptual introspection of some combination of exteroception
and somatic proprioception.
Primo, coenesthesia, i.e., the togetherness of exteroception
, interoception and proprioception, is of importance.
Usually both contactception and teleception is described with one term exteroception
. However, in presented analyses it is necessary to make clear differentiation between contactception and teleception.
Turning from the experiential role to the actual nature of existential feeling, Chapter 3 offers a phenomenological account of touch by way of clarifying how something can be both a bodily feeling and an experience of something other than the body--the point being that existential feelings are structurally analogous to tactile feelings in terms of the indissociability of proprio-and exteroception
As for the ontogenesis of mind, I suspect that it begins in the brain with the differentiation of proprioception from exteroception
, inasmuch as proprioception comprises the sensory basis for a cognitive construct of self that is at the core of consciousness (Mazziotta, 2000).
