Cristian Ciocan, “Phenomenology of Gesture Between Heidegger and Flusser”, Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review, 2022

Abstract

In this article, I discuss two approaches to the phenomenon of gesture, constituted by the existential dimension of embodiment, intersubjectivity, affectivity, and language: while Martin Heidegger states that human bodily movement as a whole should be understood as gesture in contrast to the spatial movement of things, Vilém Flusser integrates under this notion a multitude of human practices and activities that common sense hesitates to call gestures. The dilemma of the phenomenology of gesture consists in this tension between the plural concreteness of gestural appearances and the irrepressible temptation to identify a unitary layer that would allow them to hold together.

Résumé

Dans cet article, j’analyse deux approches du phénomène du geste, tel qu’il est constitué par l’incarnation, l’intersubjectivité, l’affectivité et le langage : tandis que Martin Heidegger affirme que le mouvement corporel humain dans son ensemble doit être compris comme geste par opposition au mouvement spatial des choses, Vilém Flusser intègre sous cette notion une multitude de pratiques et d’activités humaines que le sens commun hésite à appeler gestes. Le dilemme de la phénoménologie du geste consiste dans cette tension entre la concrétude plurielle des apparences gestuelles et la tentation irrépressible d’identifier une couche unitaire qui leur permettrait de tenir ensemble.
