I am not my body, this is not my body
This paper suggests that during severe and prolonged traumatic experiences such as trauma type II, one may develop disownership toward the entire body. In this situation one's body becomes a pure object and as such an integral part of the hostile environment. This article applies Merleau-Ponty's approach to perception in order to improve our understanding of this process.
