Informations and abstract

Keywords: impersonal, Merleau-Ponty, Bergson, Deleuze.

The concept of 'person' is the time-old performative device which crosses over different rhetorical strategies related to man - as it is today from personalism to phenomenology. In this essay the author interprets this concept moving from Merleau-Ponty's rupture of the traditional theoretical framework, arguing through the notions of 'dimension of spersonalization' or 'impersonal'. Such notions are firstly developed by Bergson and will reach an advanced level of thematization in Deleuze.
