The visible and the invisible; followed by working notes by Maurice Merleau-Ponty ( Book )
107 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,809 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

"Dans l'œuvre d'art ou dans la théorie comme dans la chose sensible, le sens est inséparable du signe. L'expression, donc, n'est jamais achevée. La plus haute raison voisine avec la déraison. "Cette tension essentielle ainsi formulée par l'auteur sous-tend l'ensemble des essais réunis ici sous trois grandes perspectives : celle de l'art, celle de la philosophie et celle de la politique. L'étude consacrée à Cézanne comme celle qui analyse le cinéma du point de vue de la psychologie moderne s'attachent l'une et l'autre à montrer la démarche créatrice cherchant sans cesse, face à "l'énigme du monde", quelles réponses nouvelles apporter à l'interrogation humaine. L'examen de l'existentialisme permet de clarifier les positions adoptées, dès la fin de la Seconde Guerre, par rapport à Hegel et à Marx, ainsi que de maintenir une réflexion politique et critique, en dépit de la débâcle prévue du communisme, sans retomber dans les séductions d'une "fin de l'histoire". C'est pourquoi, très courageusement, l'auteur entreprend, sous le titre "La guerre a eu lieu", un bilan général des années de guerre et d'immédiate après-guerre qui fait aujourd'hui écho à la conférence de Camus, "La crise de l'homme". Outre sa valeur historique, qui permet d'établir une sorte d'état des lieux des années 1944-1948 en France, ce recueil confirme toute l'ampleur et la richesse des intérêts et des problématiques qui caractérisent la pensée d'un auteur qu'on peut ainsi redécouvrir. -- Back cover
The world of perception by Maurice Merleau-Ponty ( Book )
23 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Czech and held by 641 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
