Description - Body Images by Gail Weiss
This text presents a wide-ranging discussion of the body image by looking at the individual's immediate apprehension toward his or her body and bodily capabilities. In a philosophical treatment of the role played by the body image in our everyday experience, Gail Weiss returns to the seminal contributions of the phenomenologist Merleau-Ponty and the psychoanalyst Paul Schilder, which reveal the complex physiological, social and physical structure of the body image.
