Summary

Maurice Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important contributions to philosophy of the twentieth century. In this volume, leading philosophers from Europe and North America examine the nature and extent of Merleau-Ponty's achievement and consider its importance to contemporary philosophy.

The chapters, most of which were specially commissioned for this volume, cover the central aspects of Merleau-Ponty's influential work. These include:

  • Merleau-Ponty’s debt to Husserl
  • Merleau-Ponty’s conception of philosophy
  • perception, action and the role of the body
  • consciousness and self-consciousness
  • naturalism and language
  • social rules and freedom.


Contributors: David Smith, Sean Kelly, Komarine Romdenh-Romluc, Hubert Dreyfus, Mark Wrathall, Thomas Baldwin, Simon Glendinning, Naomi Eilan, Eran Dorfman, Francoise Dastur
