This paper places Diderot's materialist philosophy alongside contemporary thinking from neurobiology to form a lens through which to consider the split between technique and feeling in performer training. The paper considers the way Diderot’s philosophical proposition (re) appears over and again as the premise for conceiving acting as a technique and for determining the utility of same. The discussion maps various examples from the approach developed by Stanislavsky in the early 1900s through to the contemporary more regulated design of Susana Bloch’s Alba Emoting method.
