GARCIA GONZALEZ, Bernardo. Prolegomena to a Phenomenology of Crying. Desacatos [online]. 2009, n.30, pp. 15-28. ISSN 1607-050X.

This paper questions the act of crying and analyzes three suppositions commonly used in previous research: that crying is merely the shedding of tears; that it is the opposite action of laughter; and that its comprehension is inscribed and limited to the human expression sphere. At the same time, it develops some arguments in order to postulate the need for approaching crying from a phenomenological perspective that accounts for the immediate experience of the event, without using theories that lessen the phenomenon’s richness.

Palabras llave : crying; body; phenomenology; human expression.
