This chapter discusses embodied actors, a concept which starkly contrasts with the idea of the ‘empty self’ that is driven by consumerism, consumer products and externalised identities. It investigates the importance, nature and strengths of the embodied social actor and explores the idea of embodied learning, democratic consciousness and critical democratic actors who enacted the kind of adaptive strategies discussed in the previous chapter.

Keywords:   embodied actors, empty self, embodied social actor, embodied learning, democratic consciousness, critical democratic actors
