<p>Abstract:</p><p>The Nishidian "pure experience" as well as its further development as acting intuition on the <i>basho</i> is in tune with phenomenology. In this context and based on the phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty's interest in the immense "thinking literature" of the East, as well as in the phenomenological orientation of the Kyoto School formed around the figure of Nishida KitarÅ, a comparative approach between the two will be established, taking their respective conceptions of <i>mu</i> (nothingness) and <i>creux</i> (hollow), as the dialectical nucleus to understand self and world in a non-dualistic manner. It is my claim that Nishida and Merleau-Ponty shed light on another conception of identity as opened to the other. In this evolving identity, receptiveness works as an "in-between" as well as a silence that constitutes the passivity that activity integrates, that is, existence: a self-awakening to a relational philosophy centered in the depths of the self in the flesh or <i>basho</i>.</p>
