Fundamentally Embodied: The Experience of Psychological Agency

Roger Frie, Ph.D., Psy.D

This article develops a post-Cartesian, embodied conception of psychological agency. In contrast to reductionist approaches to agency in traditional intrapsy-chic and interpersonal psychoanalytic models, I present psychological agency as a fundamentally embodied, affective, and contextualized process. As such, I maintain that the multidimensional nature of agency can only truly be captured from an interdisciplinary approach that draws equally psychoanalysis, phenomenological philosophy, and neuroscience.
