Summary/Abstract: Katarzyna Lemańska reviews Tomasz Ciesielski's book The Dancing Mind: The Theater of Movement and Dance from a Neurocognitive Perspective (Łódź, 2014) devoted to the neuroaesthetics of dance. The author describes the structure of the publication in detail, noting that it facilitates two reading strategies – linear and issue-based. The book is addressed both to dance theorists and practitioners, and, as the author himself stresses, part of it remains debatable. Ciesielski states that his research method confirms the dancers' abilities, but is incapable of explaining the phenomenon of dance and movement.
