Abstract [en]

"Knowledge must take a run through the whole body before it becomes real knowledge. If it just goes in one ear, without a ‘body run', it will immediately disappear out of the other ear and no knowledge will emerge." A junior-level teacher formulated these thoughts. In this paper they will serve as a point of departure for the discussion of learning. The aim of the paper is to illuminate, understand and discuss the meaning of the body in the learning process - the learning of writing as embodied experience. Furthermore, the boundary of learning will be highlighted. Understanding the importance of learning as embodied experience as well as the boundary of learning are probably essential elements within the educational field. In this paper I limit the discussion to raising some ideas of how learning as embodied experience and the boundary of learning can be viewed taking Maurice Merleau-Ponty's notions as theoretical starting points. Merleau-Ponty's thoughts will be discussed in relation to the contemporary junior-level teacher's view.
