Il fatale privilegio di essere uomini. Sensi e corpo in Helmuth Plessner

Vallori Rasini


During the 19th century, Helmuth Plessner advanced a theoretical conception of human nature based on the distinction between the “lived body” and the “objective corpus”. Every human being “is” a corpus, but not only that: he really “has” a body, because he is a conscious subject with sensitive and emotional experiences of himself. The aesthesiological research of Plessner aims to point out the concrete importance of sensibility in every “spiritual” creation and of the basic function of “incorporation” of senses in human beings.
