In this chapter I will discuss a number of empirical approaches to conscious visual experience which fall under the general framework of embodied cognition. I will organize the chapter by treating the following topics in order: embedded and situated vision, extended vision, enactive vision, the dynamical systems approaches to vision, and the embodied neuroscience of vision. In the first five sections of the chapter, I will present each approach along with some common objections. In the final section, I will indicate questions for future investigation. As one might expect, there will be some overlap between the different approaches.
