Abstract: In recent decades, first-generation cognitive science that bases its core on computed and disembodied in-formation processing metaphor has transformed into second-generation cognitive science that emphasizes the body and embodiment. Second-generation (embodied) cognitive science focuses on the interaction between the body and environments, emphasizes mind or cognition shaping by the body, concerns the roles played by sense - movement process and coordination in high level cognition development, and stresses the coupling relationship between the body, the brain and environments (culture). Second-generation (embodied) cognitive science has important theo-retical significance for us to understand baby movement education, and also brings many helpful inspirations to the practice of baby movement education.
