Theory and Practice
Walter B. Gulick - Editor
Gary Slater - Editor

Questioning Art beyond His Reach
Veronique M. Foti - Author

A study of the significance of the visual arts in Merleau-Ponty’s aesthetics in relation to the work of five artists not known or discussed by him.

Merleau-Ponty between Philosophy and Symbolism
Merleau-Ponty between Philosophy and Symbolism (November 2019)
The Matrixed Ontology
Rajiv Kaushik - Author

Argues that symbolism is an important and unique element of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology.

Merleau-Ponty says in his Institution and Passivity lectures that he wants to “consider criticism itself as a symbolic form” instead of doing “a philosophy of symbolic form.” This invites the possibility of an unconventional thought: If critical philosophy is a symbolic form, it cannot disclose its own limits and is, ...(Read More)

From Cinema to the Digital Revolution

The Little Crystalline Seed
The Little Crystalline Seed (June 2019)
The Ontological Significance of Mise en Abyme in Post-Heideggerian Thought
Iddo Dickmann - Author

Shows how contemporary French philosophy adopted this literary paradigm and argues for its significance for addressing concerns in ethics, ontology, and aesthetics.

Mise en abyme is a term developed from literary theory denoting a work that doubles itself within itself—a story placed within a story or a play within a play. The term flourished in experimental fiction in midcentury France, having not only a strong imp...(Read More)
