Other Selves and the Human World - Merleau-Ponty's Theory of Intersubjectivity in the Phenomenology of Perception
Today we’re going to take a look at Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s theory of intersubjectivity found in part II of his Phenomenology of Perception, in a section entitled “Other Selves and the Human World.” We’ll see how Merleau-Ponty elaborates upon Husserl’s basic theory of intersubjectivity in two ways: First, he adds to the account a subject that is embodied and imbricated in the world; second, he insists that our experience with otherness precedes the formation of identity, of the subject referred to as an “I.”
