Whereas the "sense of position" is a well-known topic in poetry and paintings, philosophers have mostly given very little cognizance to put and the human relation to put. Jeff Malpas seeks to treatment this by means of advancing an account of the character and importance of position as a posh yet unitary constitution that encompasses self and different, house and time, subjectivity and objectivity. He argues that our relation to put derives from the very nature of human idea, adventure and identification as demonstrated in and during position.

In this respect, the idea of the object is itself something established only within a place and thereby in relation to a subject, although, in saying this it must be 43 44 45 In this respect, neither can the ‘social’ be seen as having any clear priority over the ‘individual’ – both arise within the same encompassing structure. There are obvious affinities between this idea and the idea of ‘the world’ that Merleau-Ponty articulates in the Phenomenology of Perception (see especially pp. –) and of which he writes at one point that ‘the world is the field of our experience, and .
