The possibilities of connection between phenomenology and philosophical anthropology are both historical-philosophical (Scheler and Plessner belonged to the circle of Husserl's disciples) and thematic (arising from the phenomenology of corporeality, perception, intersubjectivity, etc.). This implies the possibility of elaborating on this theme by tracing the productive intersections of phenomenological analysis on the one hand and raising anthropological questions on the other. This can be used more closely in the investigation of such phenomena as illness and health, care for the self, corporeality, expressivity, being in the world and with other people. This exploration also offers the possibility for interdisciplinary collaboration between philosophy and related disciplines focusing on issues of culture, sociality or historicity.
