Il contenuto filosofico della psicoterapia corporea - The author presents an introductory clinical vignette and describes then the concept of the "good life" as a common ground between philosophy and body psychotherapy. But in comparison to the cura sui in the philosophical tradition, body psychotherapy pays major attention to the affective dimension of man. The body, too, is seen differently in body psychotherapy: it appears essentially in a biographic and interactional context, which represents the ground and the point of departure of the therapeutic process.
Key words: Philosophy and life, body psychotherapy, man as an "inhibited being", spirituality of the body
Parole chiave: Filosofia e vita, psicoterapia corporea, l’uomo come "essere inibito", spiritualità del corpo
