Leib and technologies: Relations and co-foundation

Nicola Liberati

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to study the relation and the co-foundation between the living body [Leib] and technology in a Husser-lian approach.
I want to assert the necessity of abandoning the classical concept of the Leib as a naked and natural being, constituting itself by its biological features.
Studying the action of technology, firstly as mere extension and secondly as incorporation, the co-foundational relation between technol-ogy and Leib will be evident. However, even if there is a cultural and historical foundation, there remains the necessity of a natural Leib being the base of the subject's practical level. Leib appears to be natural and cultural at the same time, it depends on what you are looking for.
