Abstract

This chapter enquires into the reationship between the embodied as well as the expressive aspects of the human being. Through a reading of several of Zambrano’s architectural figures—the ruin, the temple and the numerical structure of the universe—it is shown that Zambrano’s notion of subjectivity rests on the conception of two different modes of being, passive activity and subject agency, as well as on the notion of nothingness. Arguing against Heidegger’s notion of being there, her own subject is the result of an expressive process moving from a stage dominated by bodily expression to higher degrees of integration in which subject and object are formed. By tracing references to physics prevalent in Zambrano’s works, it is shown how she was inspired by quantum physics, as well as Aristotelian physics to develop on the embodied and enmattered aspect of the human being.
