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.
