Gabriel Marcel, Emin Çelebi
17.706 862


Reflection is led to concentrate on my body as mine. Whereas primary reflection, being purely analytical, treated this body as pure object, linked with or parallel to another thing, another reality which would be called the soul, secondary reflection recognizes in my body a fundamental act of feeling which cannot amount to mere objective possession nor to an instrumental relation, nor to something which could be treated purely and simply as identity of the subject with the object.


Primary reflection, secondary reflection, ego, body, existential fulcrum.
