A Critical Assessment on the Synthesis of the Own Body in Merleau-Ponty’s Vision

Main Article Content

Georgiana Moise

Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the vision that Merleau-Ponty has on the human body (seen from the perspective of a work of art, not completely object norsubject) approached in a way that could be called the phenomenology of corporeality – in which what is actually important is the experience of being embodied (the body distinguishing himself from the organic body), perception, bodily scheme, the structural unit and the meaning. By deliberately blending ambiguity and clarity of allegations, Merleau-Ponty creates a background which supports perception (rather than thinking) as a way of access toward the Being.
