PEIXOTO, Adão José. Formative conceptions of the senses of body and existence in Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 43-51. ISSN 1809-6867.

We considered the contributions of the phenomenology of the perception in the perspective, presented by Merleau-Ponty, as the theoretical referential. In that sense, he tries to think the body while dialectic totality of the human existence, aiming to overcome the conceptions that dichotomyze the relation body-conscience.

Keywords : Body; Existence; Phenomenology.
