McLean, Alex: Embodied creativity. In: Dagstuhl Seminar 09291 2009: Computational Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach.



By taking the view of embodied cognition summarised here, we may define embodied creative search, where sensory-motor faculties are used to navigate a geometric space, in direct metaphor to a search through a physical space. In this view, creative computation requires concepts to be represented in a manner at least sympathetic with the way humans perceive, act and introspect.
