L'intersubjectivité dans l'espace virtuel et le corps charnel virtuel
Essai d'une recherche phénoménologique
In this article I propose, on the basis of the phenomenological description, a new concept called “virtual living body” and I show its significance for studying the intersubjectivity in the virtual realities. The article consists of three parts. Firstly, I conceptualize “virtual living body” as the sphere of the objects of the world which are used by the functional analogy of our living body. This sphere is accurately distinguished from two other spheres: the living body and not instrumentalized objects of the world. Secondly, I show that the virtual living body is a necessary condition for intersubjectivity and intersubjective communication in a virtual reality, analogously like the living body is a necessary condition for intersubjectivity and intersubjective communication in general. Thirdly, I consider, on the basis of this concept, a specific form of intersubjective communication in a virtual reality called “flame war” and compare it to the master-slave dialectic of Hegel.
