Quick Reference

A key concept for some schools of phenomenology, and in particular for Merleau-Ponty. The subjective experience of one's own body is different from the objective or scientific picture of a body in physiological terms. The specific ways we experience ourselves as embodied thus become prime data for theorizing about knowledge and experience.

Subjects: Philosophy.
