The article presents cognitive phenomenology as a new methodological possibility for the humanities, and especially theatre studies, avoiding communication theory reductionism. The author adapts the perspective of amalgamated mind (ROWLANDS 2010), and elaborates its usefulness for the study of art. The article also interprets Aristotle's practical wisdom as a concept fully compatible with the cognitive perspective, and shows that the cognitive perspective should not be contradictory to the phenomenological one. The relation of phenomenality to the amalgamated mind is also discussed. The author concludes that the 'marriage of methodologies' will be successful, but only if the irreducible natures of phenomenality and embodied mind are preserved.
