Further, Merleau-Ponty’s intra-ontology and related terms are fleshed out.

    Panqualityism as a Critical Metaphysics for Neurophenomenology.Andrea Pace Giannotta - 2021 - Constructivist Foundations 16 (2):163-166.
    I examine Michel Bitbol’s proposal of a metaphysical counterpart of neurophenomenology, arguing that such a metaphysics should address the issue of the origin of consciousness. This can be accomplished through panqualityism, which conceives of the subject and object of experience as grounded in a flow of pre-phenomenal qualities. I conclude by framing this view in terms of a critical metaphysics that is consistent with the pragmatic and existential dimension of neurophenomenology.
