Rosch

Last year, I met Eleanor Rosch-in a nonacademic setting. She told me she was a professor at Berkeley...try as I might to get her to talk about herself, she never mentioned her research interests or her books. She was very friendly and welcoming, inviting me to sit with her for lunch and dinner, but I remember feeling confused and a bit disappointed that this senior professor was so reticent to talk about herself. After reading the first half of The Embodied Mind, I wonder if what I interpreted as Dr. Rosch's sense of privacy was actually an example of the "egoless or selfless" mind. (?)
