Commentary to Part 1: The Space of Life

  • Ricardo Ibarlucía
Part of the Studies in Applied Philosophy, Epistemology and Rational Ethics book series (SAPERE, volume 39)


This section discusses and contextualizes the main considerations on the space of life: von Uexküll’s notion of Umwelt and Heidegger’s criticism in the light of the distinction between physis and techne, the conceptualization of a “thymic space” in Biswanger’s psychiatric theories, the place of the other in Buber’s and Löwith’s philosophies of Duheit and the phenomenological approach to the spatiality of imaginary objects.
