Perception: How Our Bodies Shape Our Minds (Dr. Dennis Proffitt - Episode #178)
Show Notes

Seeing may be believing, but is the way we see the world accurate in the first place? In this intriguing interview with best-selling author and researcher Dr. Dennis Proffitt, we are talking about his book, Perception.  You learn why the things we DO influence what we KNOW. You'll understand how our bodies change the way we perceive the world, and what it means for us on a day-to-day basis.

Over decades of study, University of Virginia psychologist Dennis Proffitt has shown that we are each living our own personal version of Gulliver’s Travels, where the size and shape of the things we see are scaled to the size of our bodies, and our ability to interact with them. Written with journalist Drake Baer, Perception marries academic rigor with mainstream accessibility. The research presented and the personalities profiled will show what it means to not only have, but be, your unique human body.
