Abstract

The remembering and transformational capacities of our bodies point to the many ways that we are dialogically intertwined with the world, always in the midst of response and responding. Merleau-Ponty (1962, 1964, 1968) advanced this by positing our bodies as the seat of all human experience. His revolutionary line of thought provides a counter to the philosophical proposition “I think, therefor I am” from Descartes’ Principles of Philosophy (1644).
