Intersubjectivity as Interaction – In the footsteps of Merleau-Ponty
Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s notion of the body-subject has proven to be truly innovative in connecting body, mind and world. His phenomenological work is an important source of the emerging new paradigm of embedded, embodied, enactive, extended cognition (4EC)
This conference focuses on a particular theme in the expanding field of 4EC, i.e. intersubjectivity as interaction.
The aim is to investigate to what extent and in what sense Merleau-Ponty’s insights of notions such as body, world, consciousness and action, help us with the problem of intersubjectivity.
