Rothman on “Virtual Embodiment”

For those interested philosophy of mind (how can you not be?) and the possible directions that VR will take, Joshua Rothman has a good piece titled “Are We Already Living in Virtual Reality?”. Rothman visits and experiences firsthand experimental lab work on ‘virtual embodiment’, and also explores this technology’s theoretical implications for personal identity and sense of self, which are largely based on psychologist Philip Johnson-Laird’s 1983 book Mental Models.
