Merleau-Ponty's perspective of the "self" is deeply rooted in his philosophy of phenomenology and embodiment. For him, the "self" is not an isolated, thinking entity, but rather, it is intrinsically intertwined with the world through our body and sensory experiences. He emphasized that our subjective experiences and personal identity are shaped through our physical interactions with our environment. In other words, our "self" is embodied and inseparable from the world we live in. Furthermore, Merleau-Ponty believed that our perception, rather than being a passive reception of information, is an active engagement with the world, shaping our sense of "self."
