ALVIM, Monica Botelho. The Aesthetic-Political in Merleau-Ponty and Critical Phenomenology: Preliminary Notes on Race Relations. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.spe, pp. 1232-1252. ISSN 1808-4281.

The work discusses the intertwining of aesthetic and political dimensions in the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty, taking as central elements the notions of silence and expression. A political-aesthetic perspective implies considering the flesh of the social as an invisible dimension, a network of structures of meaning that gain visibility from expression, a bodily phenomenon. From reflections on institution as an alternative to the notion of constitution, Merleau-Ponty addresses the problem of the meaning no longer from the subject as an intentional pole of acts, but as an action of resuming in coexistence with others. Evenements that last and assume a dimensionality character can be resumed by the subject or by others and form a historical set, history being conceived as a process of creation and dissolution of stable forms, given in the intersubjective and intercorporeal domain. Political action has the same characters of general expression, it has an expressive character, it is a place of birth and creation that is beyond each consciousness, implying the other, subjects in the plural, in its coexistence. From this exploration, the article discusses some problems of race relations in dialogue with authors of contemporary critical phenomenology.
