|This study takes up the challenge presented to philosophy in a dramatic and urgent way by contemporary medicine: the phemen of human life. Initiated by a critical appreciation of the work of Hans Jonas, who poses that issue as well, the inquiry is brought to focus on the phemen of embodiment, using relevant medical writing to help elicit its concrete dimensions. The explication of embodiment, aided by critical studies and inquiries into medical phemena (autism, brain injury, terminal illness) make possible the development of the author's original phemelogical theory of self, and its concrete relationships with the other self. This study attempts t only to show connections among the works of a number of thinkers in terms of central problems, but to demonstrate the mutual relevance of medicine and philosophy through concrete illustrations and analysis.|
