After having considered of several relevant problems of the visual the paper gives an outline of the anthropology of the visual, which draws from M. Merlau-Ponty and H. Jonas. In its first part the subject-object model is replaced by the conception of intertwining (entre-appartenance) of the viewer and the viewed. Then the load of things is taken off the viewed by separating forms from the reality. This gesture is performed by our sight.
