At the core of Merleau-Ponty's philosophy is a sustained argument for the foundational role that perception plays in understanding the world as well as engaging with the world. Like the other major phenomenologists, Merleau-Ponty expressed his philosophical insights in writings on art, literature, linguistics, and politics. He was the only major phenomenologist of the first half of the twentieth century to engage extensively with the sciences and especially with descriptive psychology

"Merleau-Ponty was one of the few philosophers of today who never lost contact with ‘brute reality’; and it may be that Signs will be read with regret in bringing to mind his untimely death, yet with gratitude for the human ity and depth of philosophical insight into the world of lived reality which it offers."-Journal of Individual Psychology

Humanism and terror; an essay on the Communist problem by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

34 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in English and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raymond Aron called Merleau-Ponty "the most influential French philosopher of his generation." First published in France in 1947, Humanism and Terror was in part a response to Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon, and in a larger sense a contribution to the political and moral debates of a postwar world suddenly divided into two ideological armed camps. For Merleau-Ponty, the central question was: could Communism transcend its violence and intentions?The value of a society is the value it places upon man's relation to man, Merleau-Ponty examines not only the Moscow trials of the late thirties but also Koestler's re-creation of them. He argues that violence in general in the Communist world can be understood only in the context of revolutionary activism. He demonstrates that it is pointless to ask whether Communism respects the rules of liberal society; it is evident that Communism does not.In post-Communist Europe, when many are addressing similar questions throughout the world, Merleau-Ponty's discourse is of prime importance; it stands as a major and provocative contribution to limits on the use of violence. The argument is placed in its current context in a brilliant new introduction by John O'Neill. His remarks extend the line of argument originally developed by the great French political philosopher. This is a major contribution to political theory and philosophy."--Provided by publisher

Le visible et l'invisible; suivi de notes de travail by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

98 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition de 150 pages manuscrites laissées par Merleau-Ponty à sa mort et devant constituer les premiers chapitres d'un grand ouvrage intitulé ##Le visible et l'invisible##. Elles devaient introduire à un nouveau départ pour la pensée philosophique, les concepts fondamentaux de la philosophie moderne étant considérés comme des postulats résultant eux-mêmes déjà d'une interprétation singulière du monde. Le dernier tiers du volume rassemble des notes de travail, éparses, rédigées en vue de l'oeuvre, et qui peuvent en éclairer le sens. Une substantielle postface de Claude Lefort cherche à dégager le sens qu'aurait eu ##Le visible et l'invisible## dans le parcours, interrompu, de la pensée de Merleau-Ponty

The world of perception by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1948, Maurice Merleau-Ponty wrote and delivered on French radio a series of seven lectures exploring the world as we perceive it and explaining its importance. Translated here into English for the first time, they offer insight into one of the great philosophical minds of the twentieth century." "The lectures explore themes central not only to Merleau-Ponty's philosophy but phenomenology as a whole. He begins by rejecting the idea - inherited from Descartes and influential within science - that perception is unreliable, prone to distort the world around us. Merleau-Ponty instead argues that the world as we perceive it is the real world." "Merleau-Ponty explores this guiding theme through a series of reflections on science, space, our relationships with others, animal life and art. Throughout, he argues, our understanding is rooted in bodily experience of the perceived world, including experiences of the presence of other people, and equally of other animals." "He provides vivid examples with the help of Kafka, studies of animal behaviour and above all modern art, particularly the work of Cezanne and his famous saying, 'as I paint, I draw'." "An exploration of consciousness and the senses, The World of Perception is essential reading for anyone interested in the work of Merleau-Ponty, twentieth-century philosophy and art."--Jacket

Merleau-Ponty : a guide for the perplexed by Eric Matthews( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Merleau-Ponty: a Guide for the Perplexed is the ideal text for students encountering Merleau-Ponty's philosophy for the first time. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, and takes the reader through the key themes in Merleau-Ponty's work, casting light on complex ideas, including - crucially - his interpretations of 'perception', 'embodiment' and 'behavior'. The book relates Merleau-Ponty's work to that of other major philosopher's, including Descartes, Heidegger, Husserl and Sartre, and explores his influence not only upon philosophy, but also on psychoanalysis. It examines Merleau-Ponty's view of the relationship betweenphilosophyy and science, and between history, society and the individual."
