By Joona Taipale

on the sunrise of the trendy period, philosophers reinterpreted their topic because the learn of cognizance, pushing the physique to the margins of philosophy. With the coming of Husserlian idea within the overdue 19th century, the physique used to be back understood to join the transcendental box. And but, regardless of the big impression of Husserl’s phenomenology, the position of "embodiment" within the broader philosophical panorama is still principally unresolved. In his bold debut e-book, Phenomenology and Embodiment, Joona Taipale tackles the Husserlian concept—also attractive the idea of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Michel Henry—with a complete and systematic phenomenological research into the position of embodiment within the structure of self-awareness, intersubjectivity, and target fact. In doing so, he contributes a close explanation of the elemental constitutive position of embodiment within the easy family members of subjectivity.

Moreover, our embodied condition is originally revealed to us through our awareness of the environment, in the sense that our perception of the environment indicates our lived-body. Let 41 T H E E N V I RONME NT AND T HE LI V E D-BODY me elaborate this “indicating” in detail by modifying an example given by Sartre. 37 Apparently, the experience of headache does not originally manifest itself as an experience of pain in a particular area of our objective body—our body is not initially in our focus, but our “point of view and a point of departure,”38 whereas our focus is rather in the story that we are absorbed in.

76 Husserl writes: The manifold of places is something absolutely invariable, something always given. And this manifold is never given without a k[inesthesis], and neither is a k[inesthesis] given without the total manifold of places which is merely fulfilled in a changing manner. 77 Kinesthetic sensations constitute functional systems. Namely, certain kinestheses can also serve vicariously for other kinestheses without 31 S EL F -AWA RE NE S S AND S E NS I BI LI T Y compromising the identity of the appearance.

62 Nevertheless, it is important to emphasize that hyletic sensations are lived through just as intimately and originally as kinesthetic sensations are, and in this sense hyletic sensations, too, are mine and constituents of selfhood—even if they present something that is neither mine nor part of myself. 63 Presenting sensations, too, can have their existence only as lived experiences. 64 The fact that both hyletic and kinesthetic sensing are lived through in an immediate manner has important consequences to our main concerns.
