The subjectivity is not a quality separated from the body, as we the Moderns tend to think, but a quality inscribed in the living organization itself. Furthermore, it is not merely intra-individual, but at the same time relational and social. Such an interpretation of the subjectivity, inspired in particular to the works of Edgar Morin, is converging with the philosophical reflections about the subject developed by Iofrida in his discussion of the experimental results of the systemic infant research, and can help us to understand the present challenges of survival of our species, which is evolving for the first time in its history through a form of coexistence lacking of a unique organizational epicenter: the worldsociety.

Keywords: Subject, living system, relationship, world-society, Edgar Morin
