Review of Metaphysics 44 (1):136-137 (1990)

M. C. Dillon claims that the paramount task facing contemporary philosophers is to solve the problems stemming from ontological dualism. Merleau-Ponty's work is pivotal and indispensable in developing the requisite new phenomenological ontology. Dillon provides a lucid interpretive analysis both of Merleau-Ponty's position and of the context within which the present problematic can be understood and the radicality [[sic]] of Merleau-Ponty's response appreciated. He argues that Merleau-Ponty's ontology offers an alternative to the negative logical and historical consequences of dualism in western thought.
