In Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s essay Le Philosophe et Son Ombre, dedicated to Edmund Husserl, we read that “the other and I are ‘organs of the same intercorporeality’”.
As bodily subjects, we occupy a space that is not neutral or merely physical and not strictly “outside” us. Rather, the interweaving of our selves passes through our bodily involvement with our and others’ sensoriums and with objects, devices, and tools.
These forms of intertwined interactions arise in selves’ lived spaces, as the very co-constitutive material elements of our intercorporeal situatedness. We invite scholars to reflect on the idea that the notion of intersubjectivity emerges from and comes back to intercorporeal experiences of the self in artifactual milieux.
In-person participation and online viewing.
The event is due to be held at the Palazzo Greppi in Milan. This is a beautiful ornate 18th century room, with space for 96 people to attend. An audio system and video projection screen are provided. This room is located on the first floor of the building, and there is an accessible route to the room.

The BSP International Symposium:
The BSP International Symposium is intended to foster closer links between phenomenologists working in the UK and across the world. It offers a platform through which to spotlight areas of excellence and innovation at a different host institution or country each year, entering into dialogue with visiting speakers (and delegates) from the BSP and exploring points of common interest.
