MARCON, Gilberto Hoffmann  e  FURLAN, Reinaldo. Gestural sense of speech and entry into the field of language in Merleau-Ponty. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.1, pp.50-61. ISSN 1809-6867.

As part of a larger study on the development of the language theme throughout Merleau-Ponty's philosophical project, we propose na approach that addresses a central inflection of this course, the gestural sense of speech as presented in “Phenomenology of Perception”, under the particular perspective of the entry into the field of linguistic signifiers, in order to better understand the passage from general gesturality to speech itself. The conceptualization of the gestural sense of the speech aims to help in overcoming an objectivist model of language, through the proposition of an inseparability between signified and signifier. To unveil the way in which the system of signifiers structures itself as a modality of openness and relationship with the world constitutes a major part of the challenge for such an overcoming to take place effectively. The acquisition of language, in turn, presents a privileged developmental period to reflect on the particularities of the expressive phenomenon, since it represents the moment in the individual history wherein the gesture is directed to a common field of action and signification. In this perspective, we try to approach the way in which the gestural sense is capable of signifying and instituting a common field of action and signification.
