Wolfgang Müller: Motion and Emotion The application of sensory-motor concepts to the representation of emotion in literatur

This article attempts to relate to literature insights on the role of sensory and motor processes as essential constituents of cognition. It concentrates on the representation of emotion. The starting-point of the investigation is the fact that the representation of emotion in literature is – analogous to emotion in actual life – essentially constituted by motion and other physical or physiological manifestations. The investigation is supported by cognitive research and by neuroscientic research concerning the interdependence of emotion and motion. Evidence is adduced that emotional experiences are in a great quantity of literary texts represented as cognitive experiences with a strong participation of kinesthetic activities of the body.
