The primacy of perception : and other essays on phenomenological psychology, the philosophy of art, history, and politics by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

443 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 5,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phenomenology is the study of essences; and according to it, all problems amount to finding definitions of essences; the essence of perception, or the essence of consciousness, for example. But phenomenology is also a philosophy which puts essences back into existence, and does not expect to arrive at an understanding of man and the world from any starting point other than that of their 'facticity'
Sense and non-sense by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

123 editions published between 1943 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

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

29 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,006 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

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
