The body as one’s availability to others

Robert Jenson suggests that we think of bodies simply as a person’s availability to another in time and space; I am embodied for you just insofar as you intend me by way of some piece of the universe’s metaphysical furnishings. One of Pani’s comments on Augustine’s reading of R 6 suggests a similar notion of embodiment: “Per Agostino, il corpo del peccato e, in definitiva, la disponibilita della carne alla pretese del peccato” (27).
