Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Leading scholars engage the later contributions of Maurice Merleau-Ponty.

Maurice Merleau-Ponty is arguably the preeminent French philosopher of the last century, and interest in his thought is growing exponentially. This volume celebrates and interrogates the thought of Merleau-Ponty by drawing upon both classic and state-of-the-art assessments, some available in English here for the first time. The result is an essential collection of essays that explore Merleau-Ponty’s importance in terms of his originality vis-à-vis the philosophical tradition, and examine his major insights about such contemporary concerns as subjectivity, the question of the other and sociality, the natural and the human, art, the sensible and the intelligible, and the philosophical study of language. Penetrating and illuminating, these essays firmly install Merleau-Ponty among the most innovative and critically debated thinkers of the past half century.

“Through the essays in this collection Merleau-Ponty’s thought is treated in its uniqueness while expressly offering a productive confrontation with the contextual forces that shaped and affected his thinking … this is a terrific collection of essays.” — Metapsychology
