Open peer commentary on the article “The Tangled Dialectic of Body and Consciousness: A Metaphysical Counterpart of Radical Neurophenomenology” by Michel Bitbol. Abstract: This brief commentary is supportive of Michel Bitbol’s evocation of Merleau-Ponty’s ontology as the suitable means for understanding the mission of neurophenomenology. I try to historically contextualize some of Bitbol’s key points and draw attention to the methodological and pedagogical challenges that lie ahead.
