    On Perception and Trust: Merleau-Ponty and the Emotional Significance of Our Relations with Others.Susan Bredlau - 2019 - Continental Philosophy Review 52 (1):1-14.
    Our perception of the world and our relationships with other people are not, I argue, distinct activities. Focusing, first, on Merleau-Ponty’s description in the Phenomenology of Perception of his playful interaction with an infant, and, second, on contemporary research on the phenomena referred to as neonate imitation, joint attention, and mutual gaze, I argue that perception can be a collaborative endeavor. Moreover, this collaborative endeavor, which is definitive of both infant and adult perception, entails trust; our trust in others is (...)

    Monstrous Faces and a World Transformed: Merleau-Ponty, Dolezal, and the Enactive Approach on Vision Without Inversion of the Retinal Image.Susan M. Bredlau - 2011 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 10 (4):481-498.
    The world perceived by a person undergoing vision without inversion of the retinal image has traditionally been described as inverted. Drawing on the philosophical work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the empirical research of Hubert Dolezal, I argue that this description is more reflective of a representationist conception of vision than of actual visual experience. The world initially perceived in vision without inversion of the retinal image is better described as lacking in lived significance rather than inverted; vision without inversion of (...)

    A Respectful World: Merleau-Ponty and the Experience of Depth.Susan M. Bredlau - 2010 - Human Studies 33 (4):411-423.
    The everyday experience of someone, or something, getting in one’s face reveals a depth that is the difference between a world that is intrusive and a world that is respectful. This depth, I argue, should be conceived, not in feet and inches, but in terms of violation and honor. I explore three factors that contribute to this depth’s emergence. First, I examine our body’s capacity, at the level of sense experience, for giving the world a figure/ground structure; this structure insures (...)

    Simone de Beauvoir’s Apprenticeship of Freedom.Susan M. Bredlau - 2011 - PhaenEx 6 (1):42-63.
    In The Ethics of Ambiguity , Simone de Beauvoir makes reference to an “apprenticeship of freedom,” but she does not directly address why freedom requires an apprenticeship or what such an apprenticeship entails. Working from Beauvoir’s discussion of freedom in The Ethics of Ambiguity and her discussion of apprenticeships in The Second Sex , I explicate the idea of an apprenticeship of freedom, establishing why an apprenticeship is a necessary condition of freedom and describing how such an apprenticeship is administered. (...)

    Demanding Existence: Dewey and Beauvoir on Habit, Institution, and Freedom.Susan Bredlau - 2020 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 34 (2):141.
    We often consider the relations we develop with things—for example, with a cellphone—and even the relations we develop with people—for example, with a teacher—in instrumental terms. We set some end for ourselves and we understand our relations with things and people as either facilitating or obstructing our attainment of this end. We think, in other words, that while our attainment of the ends we set will depend on these relations, our very setting of ends will not, or that while the (...)

    Illness as a Phenomenon of Being-in-the-World with Others: Plato’s Charmides, Kleinman and Merleau-Ponty.Susan Bredlau - 2021 - Medical Humanities 47 (1):20-26.
    Plato’s Charmides, I argue, is a remarkably productive text for confronting and questioning some common presuppositions about the body and illness, particularly when we take seriously Socrates’ claim that healing Charmides’ headaches requires first examining—and perhaps healing—his soul. I begin by turning to the work of the psychiatrist and medical anthropologist Arthur Kleinman to argue that even if the pain Charmides experiences is more ‘physical’than ‘mental’, a physical exam and physical intervention alone will not necessarily be effective in treating his (...)
