Corporality, sensibility and world: Thinking about the concreteness of existence on the basis of Heidegger’s approach

Felipe Johnson


The purpose of this paper is to think about the problem of the human body from the point of view of the way how humans live bodily in the world. In this context, we will try to find a standpoint to consider our bodily presence in the world that doesn’t link it to the notion of spatial presence of a mere thing. Thus, by focusing on Heidegger’s approach to sensibility, body and the intimate relation between them, this study will attempt to reformulate the problem of our bodily presence in the world from the perspective of the kind of being called Dasein. This will defi ne our corporality as an existential moment whose primary meaning is the self-concreteness of existence.

Keywords: sensibility, Phenomenology of the body, Heidegger.
