This paper presents a case for embodying information systems. That is, for recognising the fundamental importance of the body in human cognition and social action, and for exploring the consequences in information systems. Current work within philosophy, biology cognitive science, and social theory demonstrates that the Cartesian dualism of mind and body is no longer tenable, and points to the embodied and enactive nature of thought and language. Three different approaches to cognition are identified and their underlying philosophies are exemplified by Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty respectively.
