Abstract

This issue is connected within the context of a seminar (Waza Gengo), which aimed to highlight the relationship that exists between traditional Japanese performing arts and the body as a tool-resource for learning, knowledge and experimentation. The contribution opens with a brief reference to the mentioned Seminar and some paragraphs to emphasize the relevance — in the considered areas — of both the exercise of awareness, as well as the of unity mind-body. The following paragraphs, more specifically, underline the importance of the gesture — harmony and presence, movements and postures — exercisable through the unity mind-body education, for a well rounded human education. The two parts of the current issue are connected to a survey on corporeity and comprehensive knowledge led by Prof. Ikuta Kumiko, in Japan, named Waza Gengo: link that the aforesaid seminar wanted to highlight on the base of correlation found between the East and West studies.
