VIEIRA, Marcelo Georgetti  and  FURLAN, Reinaldo. Algumas considerações sobre psicopatologia na filosofia de Merleau-Ponty. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp. 129-141. ISSN 1516-1498.

Some considerations on psychopatology in Merleau-Ponty philosophy. The present paper aims at stressing MerleauPonty's considerations about the psychopathologies that reveal one's own body experience as a primeval dimension of the senses. Merleau-Ponty elaborated a concrete conception of existence and avoided the Cartesian dichotomy between body and soul, or between the organic and the psychic. He did that by using Freudian psychoanalysis, which had both promoted what was traditionally considered physiological (sexuality) to the category of perceived sense, and embodied what was traditionally considered spiritual (thought).

Keywords : Merleau-Ponty; phenomenology; psychopathology.
