Merleau-Ponty was a French fenomenologista philosopher, who militated in the line of the existencialismo, and dedicated its life to the philosophical study of the behavior, in the branch of psychology and all the too much areas of the knowledge that they dictated on the interioridade of the human being in relation to the exterioridade with the world. Merleau-Ponty also it considered in its workmanship the education, and used philosophical its arcabouo in the construction of a solid understanding of the development and infantile education. We go in it withhold here basically in the conclusions that it offers in them in the Structure of the Behavior. For Merleau-Ponty the body inside has a preponderant paper of its philosophy, the body bursts as direction, it if presents as that one that structure the stimulatons, making the stimulatons to have relevance it To be that it is affected by them, without this, the external way, the sources stimulants, could not act on it. The body cannot be confused mere as part of an inert materiality, but participant asset in the production of the experience. The body then is also fenomenal, that is, it is for the objective stimulatons, and promotes the proper determination of practical direction to these stimulatons, generating significao to the same ones.
This flow of activities, for which the body if comes across constantly in relation to the world, materialize certain style of experience. (MERLEAU-PONTY, 1975, p.35) the pure reaction front I stimulate to cannot only explain it for itself the complexity of the behavior. The world without a doubt some is protagonist in the condition of generating mundane polar region of the stimulatons, however, another protagonist of same importance and, therefore indispensable for this generation of potential difference is in the body. This is not only affected, but it is capable to affect itself and it decides to be displayed to the stimulaton.
