NAFFAH, Alfredo. The "flesh" (chair) as ontological reference for "good enough mother": in order to approach Merleau-Ponty and Winnicott. Nat. hum. [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.2, pp. 61-74. ISSN 1517-2430.

This article intends to develop the argument that the notion of flesh (chair, in French) - which constitutes the principal concept of Merleau-Ponty's savage ontology - can work as an ontological reference for Winnicott's notion of good enough mother. For this purpose, it describes the notion of flesh; then, the notion of good enough mother, to finally articulate both levels of theorization: the ontological and the ontic ones, in a relation of mutual reference. At the same time, it discriminates Winnicott's conception of maternal mirror from Lacan's one (since this one implies, necessarily, an alienation of the baby in the mother's desire).

Palavras-chave : savage ontology; flesh; good enough mother; ontological reference.
