Humans are not mere brains in vats. We are living, moving creatures, and this fact matters for not only for how we think about ourselves, but also how we think about thinking itself. We consider dance’s contribution to philosophical debates about knowledge. What can we learn from dance? And can we learn through dance? Might dance itself be unique way of knowing?
