Pregnância simbólica versus antepredicativo: o diálogo entre Merleau-Ponty e Cassirer

  • Olivier Feron Universidade de Évora

Abstract

A fact ignored or underestimated by most of the specialist of the work and thought of Merleau-Ponty is the debt h is phenomenology of perception has to Ernst Cassirer's own phenomenology. The articulation of an actual dialogue between the two thinkers is here anchored in Cassirer's concept of symbolic pregnance; which will have fu rther development in Merleau's Phenomenology of Perception, especially tn the chapter he dedicated to the concept of expression. The elements of a possible discussion between the two concepts are here presented as a fruitful basis to renew the reflection on the Lebenswelt problematic.
