|Title:||Revisiting Sartre's Ontology of Embodiment in Being and Nothingness||Authors:||Moran, Dermot||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5618||Date:||2011||Abstract:||In Being and Nothingness (1943) Sartre includes a groundbreaking chapter on 'the body' which treats of the body under three headings: 'the body as being for-itself: facticity', 'the body-for-others', and 'the third ontological dimension of the body'. Sartre's phenomenology of the body has, in general, been neglected. In this essay, I want to revisit Sartre's conception of embodiment. I shall argue that Sartre, even more than Merleau-Ponty, is the phenomenologist par excellence of the flesh (la chair) and of intersubjective intercorporeity while emphasising that touching oneself is a merely contingent feature and not 'the foundation for a study of corporeality'.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Ontos Verlag||Copyright (published version):||2011 Ontos Verlag||Keywords:||Phenomenology; Embodiment; Sartre; Intercorporeality||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Vesselin Petrov (ed.).
