Réapprendre à voir le monde : Merleau-Ponty face au miroir by Eran Dorfman

By Eran Dorfman

• a brand new interpretation of the phenomenological approach as a praxis
• a distinct blend of phenomenology and psychoanalysis
• a unique examine the connection among normality and pathology
• a transparent and thorough advent to the theories of Merleau-Ponty and Lacan

C’est en interrogeant los angeles Phénoménologie de los angeles notion de Maurice Merleau-Ponty que cette étude tâche d’élaborer une notion de los angeles philosophie comme un apprentissage perceptif qui dépasserait l’opposition entre théorie et praxis. Le sujet empirique et son « angle naturelle » sont appelés à retrouver l. a. couche pré-objective qui fonde le monde objectif, à retrouver le corps vivant qui fonde le corps constitué et figé. Mais l. a. vie empirique semble résister à cet appel, de telle sorte que l. a. phénoménologie, pour désavouer l’attitude naturelle sans l. a. critiquer explicitement, se tourne vers un cas extrême, excessif, de cette même perspective: los angeles pathologie.

Dans un deuxième temps, l. a. théorie psychanalytique de Jacques Lacan est introduite pour montrer qu’il n’y a pas de vie pré-objective sans objectivité, de même qu’il n’y a pas de vie normale sans pathologie. Les rapports réciproques, ambigus, entre monde objectif et monde pré-objectif, entre normalité et pathologie, sont ici analysés pour permettre de voir que seul le mouvement perpétuel de l’un de ces pôles à l’autre peut constituer à los angeles fois l. a. vraie phénoménologie perceptive et l’existence enfin libre.
