The subject is not only situated, embedded, within a specific context but is also a corporeal, embodied subject. An embodied rationality recognizes that rationality and the knowledge that it informs cannot be divorced from the physical reality of the individual who reasons. An embodied rationality encompasses three dimensions: the body, the emotions, and the ‘irrational’ unconscious. Their locus is the body. Each introduces a different avenue through which an event or circumstance may be rendered rational or reasonable. This chapter outlines the role of each and their place in organization studies.
