about this story

    Maurice Jean Jacques Merleau-Ponty was born on March 14, 1908 unfortunately, he died on 1961. He was once a child that dreamt success. Ponty graduated his philosophy education at the Ecole Normale Superieure in 1930 and rapidly became one of the foremost French Philosophers during and after the world war 2. He was the Chair of Child Psychology at Sorbonne in 1949, also awarded as the youngest ever chair of philosophy at the college de France as well.
    Maurice contributed big time in understanding our self. He also a contributor in philosophy of art, history, language, nature, and politics. It shows us that his works are commonly associated with philosophical movement called existentialism and its intention to begin an analysis of the concrete experiences, perceptions and difficulties of human existence. He said that “I am my body” cannot simply be interpreted as advocating a materialist, behaviorist type position. He also enriches the concept of the body to allow it to both think and perceive.
    I do believe in what Maurice said that “I’ am my body” since we do have experiences and happenings in life that would lead to action, such as, if you have been hurt mentality it would reflect to your body, you will feel hurt and tired also. We have neurons in our brain called nociceptors it is in charge of pain sensation, it alert us to potentially damaging stimuli at the skin by detecting extremes in temperature and pressure. That is why we feel pain. Whatever your mind feels, your body will feel it too. I chose these pictures because I think it represents everything that Ponty says.
