I discuss different theorethical approachs of the perception self-object repporting some phylosophical influences, cognitive sciences and psychoanalysis, to show how an oscillation between adualistic and dualistic experience of the relation self-world could be associated to different forms of meaning the relation to the environment. This cognitive and affective experience is based in a certain know how that defines an ethical action in the world. How to conciliate the perception of self and self related to other as objects simultaneously distincts and contiguos? Which repercutions of these both perceptions could bring to the conservation of live and social bounds?
