    The Primary Silence of the Past and the Weakness of Philosophy.Keith L. Whitmoyer - 2014 - PhaenEx 9 (1):89.
    In light of more contemporary interest in the concept of an immemorial past, this essay takes up the manner in which this idea figures in Merleau-Ponty’s works by turning to the famous reference to “a past that has never been present” in Phenomenology of Perception. In order to contextualize and think through what Merleau-Ponty means, I turn to a reference in the same text to “primary silence.” Merleau-Ponty’s concern is to disclose the differential between the concatenation of sensibility and expression (...)

    A Philosophy of Weakness: Merleau-Ponty on Fugitive Love and the Wisdom in Letting Die.Keith Whitmoyer - 2017 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 48 (1):1-15.
    ABSTRACTThis essay provides a sketch of Merleau-Ponty’s understanding of love in relation to human experience and to the conceptualization of φιλία and σοφία outlined in his later works. In response to what he calls a “cruel thought … that is more fear of error than it is a love of truth”, Merleau-Ponty’s reflections on love and jealousy in Proust offer a concept of “fugitive love”. Opposed to the Cartesian desire for apodicticity that seeks to seize and arrest, fugitive love means (...)

    Merleau-Ponty and the Permanent Dissonance of Being. The Temporal Extensions of the Transcendental Field in Phenomenology of Perception.Keith Whitmoyer - 2012 - Chiasmi International 14:363-381.
    La dissonance permanente de l’être.L’extension du champ transcendental dans Phénoménologie de la perceptionRépondant aux reproches d’idéalisme subjectif qui hantent la Phénoménologie de la perception depuis sa publication, le présent essai affirme que l’intention deMerleau-Ponty dans ce texte n’est pas de soutenir la primauté ontologique de la conscience constituante transcendantale, mais de restaurer une certaine« épaisseur temporelle » (Merleau-Ponty 1945, 459) à la théorie de la genèse du sens. Dans Le champ phénoménal, Le cogito, et finalement dans certaines des réflexions de (...)

    Ontological Lateness.Keith Whitmoyer - 2010 - Chiasmi International 12:347-364.
    Le retard ontologique: la méta-philosophie de Merleau-PontyEn réponse à certains commentaires récents qui interprètent le développement de la philosophie de Merleau-Ponty en termes de révision des résultats de la Phénoménologie de la perception, cet essai montre que ce premier travail se caractérise par sa continuité thématique forte avec ce qui sera développé et étendu dans les écrits ultérieurs. En opposition à la plupart des interprétations standard, pour lesquelles le thème essentiel de la Phénoménologie de la perception est l’élaboration d’une philosophie (...)

    The Caprice of Being: Αἰών and Φύσις in Merleau-Ponty, Heraclitus, and Deleuze.Keith Whitmoyer - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (3):385-395.
    As he was drafting the manuscript for his unfinished work The Visible and the Invisible, Merleau-Ponty was concerned with the modern crisis of rationality expressed in our relationship to nature, a crisis that requires a revision and radicalization of our ontology, a radicalization that, as he says, entails the "rediscovery of φύσις, then of λόγος."1 In light of the incompleteness of this project, there has been some fruitful discussion of Merleau-Ponty's philosophy of nature at the end of his career and (...)

    The Wounds of Time: Phenomenology and the Problem of the Unconscious in Merleau-Ponty's Passivity Lecture.Keith Whitmoyer - 2019 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 33 (3):461-474.
    There has been a wealth of literature on the relationship between phenomenology and psychoanalysis as well as a persistent interest in the exchange between these two forces of twentieth century philosophy.1 Even so, the relationship between the notable figures of the phenomenological tradition and psychoanalysis has been fraught: in spite of Freud being a contemporary of Husserl, having also studied with Brentano at the University of Vienna, references to Freud in Husserl's work are notably absent.2 For his part, Heidegger seems (...)
