Corpo, gozo e sofrimento: a partir de Michel Henry

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Without knowing how to solve the enigma of the origin of writing, nor to
clarify the mystery of the bodies that speak, it is easy for us to note that both
require the dynamism of a life that is always someone’s, that is always
someone who escapes his own beginning. Writing as much as speaking
(indispensable to say something about the body) require the way in which
form, force and affection are always combined in the body and both imply the
fact that we, for the simple fact of being, are always already implied in that
expressive conjunction. What does Michel Henry tell us about the immanent knowledge of subjective body, required by any form of objectivity, and intertwined wtih the pathos proper to the essential auto-affection of Life.
