The Vulnerable Body: The Human Corporeality and its Limit-Situations (2009-2010)

Field of study: Philosophy

In this article, we wish to expose the main outlines of an applied phenomenological investigation of human corporeality. Since
the philosophical perspective assumed in this research is openly phenomenological, it is obvious that the theoretical core of the present study will rely on the interpretation of the living body proposed by several major twentieth century phenomenologists, such as Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Michel Henry, and Emmanuel Levinas. However, our aim is to apply certain results of this phenomenological line of interpretation to several limit-situations of the body, which might be able to expose the fundamental layers of meanings of the phenomenon of embodiment.

Keywords: phenomenology, human corporeality, embodiment
