Critical remarks

Richard Zaner

pp. 106-125

The being of consciousness is not in any of its dimensions capable of being made into an object by the same consciousness. Therefor, in so far as the body-for-itself is a structure of the being of consciousness as for-itself, it cannot be made an object by consciousness. Similarly, consciousness can only exist its being a body-for-Others but not by itself. I do not know my body as such in its three dimensions, I am it: being it, my body can never become an object for me.
