Overview

French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908—1961) shifted the terrain of western philosophy when he identified the body, rather than consciousness, as the primary site of our meaningful engagement with the world. His magnum opus, The Phenomenology of Perception (1945), revolutionized work in philosophy, psychology, cognitive science and other fields.  

Perception and Its Development in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology brings together essays from fifteen leading Merleau-Ponty scholars to demonstrate the continuing significance of Merleau-Ponty's analysis. Mirroring the progression found in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception, the essays in this volume engage in original phenomenological research to demonstrate the dynamic development of perceptual life from perception's most foundational forms (spatiality, temporality, intentionality, etc.) to its richest articulations in political life and artistic activity. This comprehensive volume is a powerful resource for students and scholars alike studying Merleau-Ponty's philosophy and serves both as a commentary upon and companion to his The Phenomenology of Perception.

Editorial Reviews

Review of Metaphysics Vol 71:02:2018 - Duane H. Davis

"This anthology represents a wide range of interesting topics, and will make a valuable contribution to Merleau-Ponty scholarship. It will also bolster the well-deserved reputation for creative (mostly) Canadian work in this area of contemporary French philosophy."
