Phenomenology of perception by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

387 editions published between 1945 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 4,857 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 )

120 editions published between 1943 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,149 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

137 editions published between 1942 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the changing sounds of the rain, the slow soft sprinkle, the drip-drop tinkle, the sounding pounding roaring rain, and the fresh wet silent after-time of rain
Adventures of the dialectic by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

93 editions published between 1955 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We need a philosophy of both history and spirit to deal with the problems we touch upon here. Yet we would be unduly rigorous if we were to wait for perfectly elaborated principles before speaking philosophically of politics." Thus Merleau-Ponty introduces _Adventures of the Dialectic,_ his study of Marxist philosophy and thought. In this study, containing chapters on Weber, Lukacs, Lenin, Sartre, and Marx himself, Merleau-Ponty investigates and attempts to go beyond the dialectic
The world of perception by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2020 in English and held by 1,637 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

Signs by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

24 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speech is a way of tearing out a meaning from an undivided whole." Thus does Maurice Merleau-Ponty describe speech in this collection of his important writings on the philosophy of expression, composed during the last decade of his life. For him, expression is a category of human behavior and existence much broader than language alone. He maintains that man is essentially expressive, even prior to speaking: in his silence, gestures, and lived behavior

L'oeil et l'esprit by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

105 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'œil et l'Esprit est le dernier écrit que Merleau-Ponty put achever de son vivant.Installé, pour deux ou trois mois, dans la campagne provençale, non loin d'Aix, au Tholonet, goûtant le plaisir de ce lieu qu'on sentait fait pour être habité, mais surtout, jouissant chaque jour du paysage qui porte à jamais l'empreinte de l'œil de Cézanne, Merleau-ponty réinterroge la vision, même temps que la peinture. Il cherche, une fois de plus, les mots du commencement, des mots, par exemple, capables de nommer ce qui fait le miracle du corps humain, son inexplicable animation, sitôt noué son dialogue muet avec les autres, le monde et lui-même - et aussi la fragilité de ce miracle. Claude Lefort
Consciousness and the acquisition of language by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1991 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

94 editions published between 1961 and 2019 in French and Undetermined and held by 711 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

L'Union de l'âme et du corps chez Malebranche, Biran et Bergson. Notes prises au cours de Maurice Merleau-Ponty by Maurice Merleau-Ponty( Book )

60 editions published between 1968 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nel 1947 Maurice Merleau-Ponty viene incaricato di preparare gli studenti dell'École Normale Supérieure e dell'Università di Lione al difficile esame dell'agrégation. Oggetto d'esame sono le filosofie di Malebranche, Biran e Bergson. Merleau-Ponty decide di collegare queste tre diverse esperienze di pensiero alla luce di uno dei suoi maggiori interessi del momento: l'unione dell'anima e del corpo. Un tema centrale per riuscire a superare quei dualismi che ci impediscono di cogliere l'integralità del nostro essere al mondo. Dagli appunti degli uditori del corso verrà fuori questo libro, pubblicato soltanto anni dopo la morte di Merleau-Ponty. La minuziosa lettura di Malebranche, Biran e Bergson sviluppata in queste pagine non risponde solo a un compito accademico ma rappresenta il tentativo di attraversarli per sviluppare una propria posizione. Così Merleau-Ponty ci offre un bellissimo esempio di come vadano letti i filosofi, di come possano essere interpretati attraverso il loro "non-pensato", di come la comunicazione e il pensiero si producano attraverso i residui, gli scarti, e quegli abbozzi che spetta a ognuno di noi ricominciare e completare
