Intercorporeality in Artifactual Milieux
The Department of Philosophy “Piero Martinetti”, University of Milan

Location: Milan, Italy. Università degli Studi di Milano. In-person and online
Date: Monday 29 – Tuesday 30 May 2023

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.
