Barbara Gail Montero is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the City University of New York. Most of her research concerns one or the other of two very different notions of body: body as the physical or material basis of everything, and body as the moving, breathing, flesh and blood instrument that we use when we run, walk, or dance. Her recent book Thought in Action: Expertise and the Conscious Mind (OUP, 2016) explores this latter topic. She is also the author of On the Philosophy of Mind (Wadsworth Press, 2009) and co-editor of Economics and the Philosophy of Mind, (Routledge, 2006). She has written over fifty articles, including one for the New York Times, which was reprinted in The Stone Reader: Modern Philosophy in 133 Arguments (Norton/Liveright, 2015).
