The article is written in intention of American philosophers Drew Leder and Glen A. Mazis, who consider about the possibility of using the lived-body concept (Maurice Merleau- Ponty) within the frame of medicine. The conceptual ground consists of Cartesian view of body, phenomenological approach to body and distinction between them. Two basic problems of traditional medical model of body are underlined and are to be overcome by lived-body concept. Medical intervention broadened of this concept is specified as reciprocal medicine of lived-body. Examined issue leads to innovation of our relations to the world, which are principled assignation of our corporeality and also the result of therapeutic effect of admission the lived-body concept within the medical intervention(original abstract)
