"Observing the world is a more complex enterprise than the mere activation of the ‘visual brain’, because it implies a multimodal notion of vision. Neuroscientific evidence from non-human primates and humans is summarized and discussed, with particular emphasis on space, objects, actions, emotions and sensation. It is argued that vision also encompasses the activation of motor, somatosensory and limbic parts of the brain, within the broader notion of the intrinsic pragmatic nature of our relations with the world. This empirical evidence will be used to discuss the notion of embodied simulation, here proposed as a new model of visual perception and cognition and potentially capable of showing how to link language to our bodily nature."
