Corpo della parola, corpo del senso: espressione e pensiero in M. Merleau-Ponty

Federica Frattaroli


My paper investigates the relation between the field of language and the field of meaning in M. Merleau-Ponty’s thought. Its main purpose is to show the phenomenological origin of the notion of embodiment as it appears into the theory of embodied cognition. As we analyze the role of expression and body in relation to thought and ideality, a question becomes urgent: does the reflection on embodied cognition include the transcendental core of phenomenology?
