Abstract [en]

Although embodiment has become an important concept inmany areas of cognitive science during the past two decades,most research has focused on individual agents and theirinteractions with the environment. This paper focuses on thesocial dimension of embodiment, and offers a conceptualframework that addresses embodied actions in the socialrealm. The framework identifies some fundamental functionsof embodiment in social interaction, which are also illustratedby a case study in an everyday social setting. Generallyspeaking, embodied actions provide a helping hand in socialinteraction, both in a literal and practical sense.
