about this story

Maurice Merleau-Ponty believed the physical body to be an important part of what makes uo the subjective self. This concept stands in contradiction to rationalism and empiricism … This work asserts the self and perception are encompassed in a physical body. The physical body is part of self
Almost in a Goldilocks this-porridge-is-too-hot-this-porridge-is-too-cold sort of way, Maurice Merleau-Ponty stepped on the scene and declared rationalism and empiricism both miss the mark. To him, rationalism elevates the importance of the mind and perception too much, while empiricism too strongly negates them..
