Merleau-Ponty—Things and bodies

 

"Visible and mobile, my body is a thing among things; it is one of them. It is caught in the fabric of the world, and its cohesion is that of a thing. But because it moves itself and sees, it holds things in a circle around itself. Things are an annex or prolongation of itself; they are incrusted in its flesh, they are part of its full definition; the world is made of the very stuff of the body."

Merleau-Ponty—Embodiment

"We cannot imagine how a mind could paint. It is by lending his body to the world that the artist changes the world into paintings... that body which is an intertwining of vision and movement."
