What is a gesture? Is it simply a movement of the body, or is it something more? In The Minor Gesture: Thought in the Act, Shaun Gallagher argues that gestures are not merely physical movements, but rather essential components of human cognition and action.

Gallagher draws on a wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, anthropology, linguistics, and sociology, to develop a new understanding of the role of gesture in human life. He argues that gestures are not simply expressive add-ons to speech, but rather are constitutive of thought and action.

Gallagher shows how gestures play a crucial role in our understanding of the world around us. We use gestures to point out objects, to indicate directions, and to express our emotions. Gestures also help us to remember information and to solve problems. In short, gestures are essential for human communication and cognition.

The Minor Gesture: Thought in the Act is a groundbreaking work that challenges our traditional understanding of the mind and body. Gallagher's research shows that gestures are not merely physical movements, but rather are essential components of human cognition and action.
