Synopsis

This volume presents an exploration of the role of embodied cognition in creating personal, imaginative renditions of hair, that also distally relate to the symbolic significance of the fairytale character Rapunzel's hair (in terms of physical life, romantic life, spiritual life, and psychic life, respectively). Integral to this relation, is the author's idea of "fancifold", which is a quality or state of the imagination that can produce unique neuropsychological elements of enchantment and disenchantment entwined. This book will be of interest to scholars and other researchers concerned with how cognition (including psychology and the brain, psychology and literature, psychology and art, philosophy of mind, and metaphor) might relate specifically to understanding the subjective experience of hair.

Lisa Pavlik-Malone holds a PhD in Psychology from Fordham University, New York, USA, with a specialization in cognitive science. She is the author of two previous books, Being Doll (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2013) and Dolls & Clowns & Things (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2011). She teaches Developmental Psychology and Educational Psychology at her local college.
