Why We Dance: A Philosophy of Bodily Becoming (Columbia University Press, 2015)
Kimerer LaMothe is a dancer, philosopher, and independent scholar of religion.
"I have been writing this book for years—writing toward it, writing around it, writing underneath and beside it. In this book are arguments I have been reaching to make about how and why dance is a vital art—vital not just for our physical selves, but for our emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves. For our humanity.
What is dance? Why do we do it? Why should we?" - Personal Website, 1/26/16
