The Wounded Body

Towards a Phenomenology of Health and Illness
  • Guillermo Michel


I have reached the stage of being, in the world, in this body. There is nothing closer to perception itself, and possibly nothing as obscure and amazing as this awakening and renewal of the experience of being-in-the-world, thanks to which I have learnt that it is only “with the attraction of this Love,” living flame, that all art, including the art of healing, is possible.
