In spite of the several uses given to the term embodiment in modern approaches to cognition, psychology, neuroscience, psychiatry and anthropology, there is, if not a lack of a common referent, at least a certain vagueness about this word. There may be something to be said for people who suggests that such terms are mere placeholders for notions that are yet to be properly cashed out scientifically and phenomenologically, and that perhaps, because of this, such signifiers should be used less and less the more we can sharpen their vague content.
