Stein's phenomenology is one that is particularly sensitive to intersubjective constitution, and thus her constitutional analysis of the body is one that allows for an analysis of the body as „socially constructed‟ (in so far as one understands this term to mean the same as „inter-subjectively constituted‟). The purpose of this paper is to give an account of Stein's phenomenology of the body as it appears in On the Problem of Empathy, her constitutional analysis being explicitly articulated in this work as including both subjective and intersubjective layers.
