Title: "Philosophy in the flesh" : being human with Clarice Lispector
Author: Correia, Alda Maria
Keywords: Embody
Issue Date: Jun-2011
Publisher: Edições Húmus
Abstract: According to Lakoff "thought is embodied, that is, the structures used to put together our conceptual systems grow out of our bodily experience and make sense in terms of it; moreover, the core of our conceptual systems is directly grounded in perception, body movement and experience of a physical and social character" (1987). If we read Lispector’s work as an oxymoron, an interplay between the basic magma of life and the metaphysical perplexities it generates, we will find at least three areas of description: devouring and eating, primordial substances and the animals. This paper proposes to show Lispector's use of "philosophy in the flesh" in some of her most representative works like “Uma História de tanto amor”, Uma Aprendizagem ou O Livro dos Prazeres or A Maçã no Escuro.
