The introduction of the "I" body into the philosophic discourse of L. Feuerbach

This article is devoted to the radical turn accomplished by L. Feuerbach into German classical philosophy. The philosopher breaks with the principles of idealism by introduction of new anthropological approach. Putting emphasis on human body and emphasizing the dialogical nature of consciousness allows him to express a number of ideas that begin to develop in different disciplines - philosophy, personal, social psychology, etc. - in the twentieth century. Feuerbach points out the inhomogeneous character of the human "Self," which is always sexually defined. It depends both on the connection with the particular, sensible Other, as well as on the emotions and needs that the person experiences. Human "Self" is inhomogeneous also because it changes over time. The dialogical nature of consciousness allows Feuerbach to offer a new understanding of conscience. There is nothing supernatural in the latter, because its voice always represents the protest of the injured or offended Other.
