Do the senses inhibit are judgement or do the senses increase are judgment for a more objective reality? This basic arguement has been debated ever since the time of Ancient Greece. As more research shows, the philosophy of Plato is becoming more real. As children, humans begin to categorize their world, picking out certain characteristics and weeding out other characteristics that are body related. These experiences are image schemas which are non-cultural that everyone experiences but are either used or non-used depending on the social environment that enforces them. Therefore, the objective reality cannot exist since there are characteristics that are eliminated and others that are given importance. Johnson does a superb job in explaining the image schema, that is a most difficult concept to grasp. The mind is is part of the body, not separated from it as shown in this book.
