A partire dagli ultimi decenni del secolo scorso si è affermato un modello di mente nuovo: il cosiddetto ‘paradigma motorio’, in contrapposizione con la concezione tradizionale della mente che ha caratterizzato la filosofia moderna e che è stata alla base delle scienze cognitive nel Novecento. Secondo la teoria motoria della mente, non c’è una separazione sostanziale tra percezione e azione, tra mente e corpo; la mente è ‘formata’ dai movimenti e per i movimenti (mentre, nella concezione tradizionale, li pianifica semplicemente); il movimento, inoltre, non è solo il mezzo per eseguire i comandi dei centri cerebrali superiori (la mente), ma è l’attività mentale a essere il mezzo – prodotto in prima istanza dal cervello e dal corpo nel suo insieme – per produrre le azioni. L’autrice delinea il percorso storico e teorico che ha portato ai nuovi modelli della mente: partendo dalle prime concettualizzazioni moderne del nesso sensazione-movimento agli sviluppi teorici – dalla filosofia alle odierne neuroscienze cognitive – che sono approdati al ‘paradigma motorio’, sul quale si basano gli approcci più recenti. Il corpo e il movimento, dunque, come punto di partenza e al tempo stesso di arrivo di più di quattro secoli di studio della mente. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… Starting in the last decades of the last century, a new model of mind has emerged: the so-called 'motor paradigm,' in contrast to the traditional conception of the mind that characterized modern philosophy and which was the basis of cognitive sciences in the twentieth century. According to the motor theory of the mind, there is no substantial separation between perception and action, between mind and body; the mind is 'formed' by the movements and for the movements (while, in the traditional conception, it simply plans them); moreover, movement is not only the means to carry out the commands of the higher brain centers (the mind), but it is mental activity that is the means - produced in the first instance by the brain and by the body as a whole - to actions. The author outlines the historical and theoretical path that led to the new models of the mind: starting from the first modern conceptualizations of the sensation-movement connection to theoretical developments - from philosophy to today's cognitive neuroscience - which have landed on the 'motor paradigm', on which the most recent approaches are based. The body and movement, therefore, as the starting point and at the same time the arrival point of more than four centuries of study of the mind.]
