About this topic
Summary Merleau-Ponty (1908-1961) is best known for his contributions to phenomenology, in particular to phenomenological approaches to the body, perception, and consciousness in relation to nature. This also leads him to contributions in aesthetics, ontology, and the philosophy of nature, philosophy of science and philosophy of psychology. Through critical engagement with Marxism, in his philosophical and popular writings, he also contributes to social and political philosophy. A contemporary and colleague of figures such as Sartre, de Beauvoir, and Lacan, he was a public intellectual in France. He was Chair of Child Psychology and Pedagogy at the Sorbonne from 1949-52, and was appointed Chair of Philosophy at the Collége de France in 1952. He passed away suddenly at the age of 53, leaving behind a rich though incomplete project in phenomenological ontology and an array of unpublished notes and lectures.
Key works The monographs published by Merleau-Ponty in his lifetime (here listed for the English reader in translation, but with original publication dates) are Structure of Behaviour (1943), Phenomenology of Perception (1945), Humanism and Terror (1947), In Praise of Philosophy (1953), and Adventures of the Dialectic (1955). As well, he published collections of essays in Sense and Non-Sense (1948) and Signs (1960). At the time of this death Merleau-Ponty was working on a monograph, incomplete, which was titled The Visible and the Invisible (1961) by its editor, Claude Lefort.The Prose of the World is a project Merleau-Ponty abandoned circa 1952 that was published in 1968, after his death. As well, a number of his lectures courses have been published, drawing on notes from him and his students, on topics such as child psychology, nature, Husserl, institution and passivity, the world of expression and sense, the use of language in literature (see the list of works by Merleau-Ponty for further details).  For English readers, The Merleau-Ponty Reader, The Merleau-Ponty Aesthetics Reader, and The Primacy of Perception contain helpful collections of and selections from Merleau-Ponty’s published and unpublished texts. Also, The World of Perception, which is a transcription from a series of radio addresses given by Merleau-Ponty in 1948, offers a nice introduction to his early work.
Introductions For English readers, the following provide helpful resources and introductions for studying Merleau-Ponty and his texts: The Being of the Phenomenon (Barbaras), Merleau-Ponty (eds. Carman and Hansen), Merleau-Ponty’s Ontology (Dillon), Merleau-Ponty: Key Concepts (eds. Diprose and Reynolds), Merleau-Ponty’s Philosophy (Hass), The Merleau-Ponty Dictionary (Landes), The Phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty (Madison), Merleau-Ponty’s Philosophy (Mallin), Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Merleau-Ponty (Romdenh-Romluc).

    Body Integrity Identity Disorder, formerly also known as apotemnophilia is characterized by a desire for amputation of a healthy limb and is claimed to straddle or to even blur the boundary between psychiatry and neurology. The neurological line of approach, however, is a recent one, and is accompanied or preceded by psychodynamical, behavioural, philosophical, and psychiatric approaches and hypotheses. Next to its confusing history in which the disorder itself has no fixed identity and could not be classified under a specific (...)

    The Strange Nature of Quantum Perception: To See a Photon, One Must Be a Photon.Steven M. Rosen - unknown
    This paper takes as its point of departure recent research into the possibility that human beings can perceive single photons. In order to appreciate what quantum perception may entail, we first explore several of the leading interpretations of quantum mechanics, then consider an alternative view based on the ontological phenomenology of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Martin Heidegger. Next, the philosophical analysis is brought into sharper focus by employing a perceptual model, the Necker cube, augmented by the topology of the Klein bottle. (...)

    This paper seeks firstly to understand Deleuze’s main challenges to phenomenology, particularly as they are expressed in The Logic of Sense and Difference and Repetition. We then turn to a discussion of one of the few passages in which Deleuze and Guattari directly engage with Merleau-Ponty, which occurs in the chapter on art in What is Philosophy? In this text, he and Guattari offer a critique of what they call the “final avatar” of phenomenology – that is, the “fleshism” that (...)

    This paper has two aims. The first is to use contemporary discussions of naïve realist theories of perception to offer an interpretation of Merleau-Ponty’s theory of perception. The second is to use consideration of Merleau-Ponty’s theory of perception to outline a distinctive version of a naïve realist theory of perception. In a Merleau-Pontian spirit, these two aims are inter-dependent.

    In this paper, I critically reconstruct the development of Merleau-Pontyan phenomenology and “radical embodied cognitive science” out of Berlin-School Gestalt theory. I first lay out the basic principles of Gestalt theory and then identify two ways of revising that theory: one route, followed by enactivism and ecological psychology, borrows Gestaltist resources to defend a pragmatic ontology. I argue, however, that Merleau-Ponty never endorses this kind of ontology. Instead, I track his second route toward an ontology of “flesh.” I show how (...)

    Thinking Descartes in Conjunction, with Merleau-Ponty: The Human Body, the Future, and Historicity.James Griffith - 2019 - Filozofia 2 (74):111-125.
    This article addresses a debate in Descartes scholarship over the mind-dependence or -independence of time by turning to Merleau-Ponty’s "Nature" and "The Visible and the Invisible." In doing so, it shows that both sides of the debate ignore that time for Descartes is a measure of duration in general. The consequences to remembering what time is are that the future is shown to be the invisible of an intertwining of past and future, and that historicity is the invisible of God.

    De Reconciliatione: Violence, the Flesh, and Primary Vulnerability.James Griffith - 2018 - In Dagmar Kusá (ed.), Identities in Flux: Globalization, Trauma, and Reconciliation. Bratislava, Slovakia: pp. 69-80.
    This essay compares Maurice Merleau-Ponty's notion of the flesh with Judith Butler's concept of primary vulnerability in terms of their helpfulness for developing an intersubjective ontology. It compares the flesh with Butler's more recent concept of primary vulnerability insofar as she sees both as useful for intersubjective ontology. The hiatus of the flesh is that which spans between self and world and opens Merleau-Ponty's thought onto an intersubjective ontology. While Butler's discussion of vulnerability as a primary condition of human existence (...)

    This article explores the importance of Merleau-Ponty’s account of sexuality for his early theories of existence and expression. The holistic, social, and plural nature of expressive human behavior, which is elaborated in The Structure of Behavior, is used to argue against criticisms that his early works remain stuck in naturalism. Upon this theory of expression and through a close reading of 'Le corps comme être sexué' chapter of the Phenomenology of Perception, many classic criticisms of his phenomenology of sexuality are (...)

    Sense Experience and Poly-Intentionality in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception.John Montani - 2019 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 33 (3):381-389.
    In this essay, I discuss how Maurice Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology concretizes our understanding of intentionality by rooting it in the body and in the senses in particular. In what follows I attempt to sketch out a version of "poly-intentionality" that I find implicit in Merleau-Ponty's chapter "Sensing" in his Phenomenology of Perception. Within this chapter, Merleau-Ponty argues that sensation is intentional, contrary to Husserl's stance that sensations require apperceptive acts of sense-giving in order to constitute them in experience.1 In addition to (...)

It concerns the connection between embodiment and emergence. In the commitment to explanatory holism, and the irreducibility of embodiment to any mechanistic and/or neurocentric construal of the interactions of the component parts, I argue there is (often, if not always) an unavowed dependence on an epistemic and metaphysical role (...)

    Merleau-Ponty characterizes the poetic or literary use of language as bringing forth of sense as if it is a being that is an interlocutor with its readers. Sense will be explored as interwoven with a deeper imagination that works within the temporality of institution to become more fully manifest. Throughout the essay will be seen the overlap with Claudel’s ontology as expressed in L’Art poetique and Claudel’s approach to language. Why Merleau-Ponty’s articulation of embodiment and perception must culminate in the (...)

    What resources does Merleau-Ponty’s account of the body schema offer to the Fanonian one? First I show that Merleau-Ponty’s theory of the body schema is already a theory of affect: one that does not oppose affects to intentionality, positioning them not only as sense but as force, cultivating affective agencies rather than constituting static sense content. Then I argue that by foregrounding the role of affect in both thinkers, we can understand the way in which the historical-racial schema innovates, anticipating (...)

    Eliciting Deviation.Daniel Rosenberg - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:225-238.
    In his discussions on literature, Merleau-Ponty often turns to the notion of deviation as a constitutive principle of literary language. Deviation indicates the capacity of a literary work to transgress against its own limits and to offer an experience of otherness, or alterity. This alterity is not given in the work, but is constituted by the recipient through the more visceral and physical aspects of literary language. The recipient of the work thus adopts a second voice: that of the author (...)

    On the Place of Resistance in Ontology.Jay Worthy - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:321-334.
    Beginning with Fanon’s challenge to the universality of the project of ontology, this paper considers whether and how Merleau-Ponty’s early and late thinking may yield a response. From the outset, Merleau-Ponty’s appeal to the materiality of the body is intended as a limit on the scope of ontology. As I argue, however, Merleau-Ponty’s early concept of ‘one’s own body’ suggests an “ontological equality” that would be shared among all embodied beings; implicitly, this early approach risks reinforcing Fanon’s concern that ontology (...)

Au début des années cinquante, cette phénoménologie de l’oeuvre d’art et de la perception esthétique fait place à une philosophie de l’expression.

    Merleau-Ponty spent the summer of 1960 in the small French village of Le Tholonet writing Eye and Mind. His choice of location was no accident. Le Tholonet was the physical and emotional epicenter of Paul Cezanne’s late painting, the ultimate proving ground of his relentless quest to reveal the truth of landscape in art.It makes perfect sense that Merleau-Ponty wrote Eye and Mind in Le Tholonet. The essay is a philosophical meditation on vision and painting. But it also is a (...)

    In a promising working note to the Visible and Invisible, Merleau-Ponty proposes that we understand Being according to topological space – relations of proximity, distance, and envelopment – and move away from an image of Being based on homogeneous, inert Euclidean space. With reference to treatments of cross-sensory perception, color-blindness, and the concept of quale or qualia, I seek to rehearse this shift from Euclidean to topological Being by illustrating how modern science confines color itself to a Euclidean model of (...)

    The Tension of Intention.Amy A. Foley - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:207-223.
    This article examines Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s reference to Franz Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis” and “Investigations of a Dog” in his lecture on gesture and reconciliation, “Man Seen from the Outside.” Given the centrality of gesture in Kafka’s work, this essay considers the connections between the two figures and the likely influence of Kafka on Merleau-Ponty’s concept of gesture and intentionality. It compares their respective philosophies of gesture as they relate to meaning, reliability, silence, music, and intention. Finally, Kafka’s gestural motif of the (...)

    Le Premier Livre de Merleau-Ponty, Un Roman.Emmanuel Alloa - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:253-268.
    Dans son oeuvre tardive, Merleau-Ponty a souligné les convergences entre une pensée philosophique et une pensée s’exprimant par l’écriture littéraire, considérant que toutes deux répondent à une tâche commune liée à la description du monde. Ses premiers écrits théoriques – Simone de Beauvoir comme Jean-Paul Sartre l’ont souligné – sont quant à eux marqués par une distance plus nette vis-à-vis de la pratique littéraire. Pourtant, bien avant de publier ses premières monographies, Merleau-Ponty est l’auteur d’un livre écrit pour le compte (...)

    Proust E la Biologia. È Possibile Una Letteratura di Fantasmi?Federico Leoni - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:135-147.
    Questo articolo riflette sul posto della letteratura nel complesso della ricerca di Merleau-Ponty, assimilando la funzione che essa svolge nell’economia del suo pensiero alla funzione in esso svolta da altre pratiche e saperi come la biologia o la psicoanalisi. Ciascuno di questi discorsi, chiamiamoli così, offrirebbe a Merleau-Ponty un accesso a qualcosa come una comune sostanza fantasmatica, una comune consistenza metamorfica dell’essere, che tanto il biologo quanto il letterato o lo psicoanalista lavorerebbero con le scritture e le categorie loro proprie. (...)

    Merleau-Ponty, L’Origine de la Géométrie Et la Littérature.Franck Robert - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:149-165.
    Le commentaire que propose Merleau-Ponty de L’origine de la géométrie de Husserl en 1960 accorde une place privilégiée au langage, à l’écrit : l’étonnement peut être grand de voir Merleau-Ponty, dans la continuité de Husserl, penser la genèse de l’idéalité géométrique à partir d’une méditation sur la littérature. La réflexion de Merleau-Ponty sur la littérature a pris un tour ontologique décisif au début des années cinquante, dans le long commentaire de Proust notamment en 1953-1954. C’est dans cet esprit que le (...)

    Proust’s Disenchantments, the “Repoetization” of Experience, and the Lineaments of the Visible.Stephen H. Watson - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:117-134.
    This paper investigates the role of literature and, in particular, Proust in Merleau-Ponty’s late works’ rehabilitation of the ontology of the sensible. First, I trace Proust’s role in Phenomenology of Percpetion, contrasting it with the somewhat more paradigmatic status as a model it plays in the late works. Second, I compare this with the role of the novel as partial myth in Schelling, who also played an essential role in Merleau-Ponty’s refiguration of the sensible. I briefly trace his examination of (...)

    L’Animisme de Merleau-Ponty Et Guattari. Une Critique de La Machine Sensible de Stefan Kristensen.Judith Wambacq - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:371-377.
    Avec son livre La machine sensible, Stefan Kristensen réalise, de façon magistrale, deux objectifs. D’abord, il met en lien la pensée de deux philosophes qui sont à première vue très éloignés l’un de l’autre. Il s’agit de Félix Guattari et de Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Traditionnellement, Merleau-Ponty est considéré comme le philosophe du corps, tandis que Guattari est connu comme le philosophe du corps sans organes. Merleau-Ponty est un phénoménologue, tandis que Guattari prétend abandonner le point de vue du sujet. Kristensen démontre (...)

    La Surface Obscure.Mauro Carbone - 2019 - Chiasmi International 21:103-115.
    Tout le trajet de la pensée de Merleau-Ponty est traversé – en certains cas de manière plus évidente que d’autres – par ce que je propose de définir comme une idée de la littérature et de la philosophie en tant que dispositifs de vision, pour utiliser une expression qui est née – et ce n’est pas un hasard – dans le domaine des études cinématographiques. Plus précisément, je voudrais montrer que Merleau-Ponty voit la littérature et la philosophie de son époque (...)
