Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Language, Paperback / softback Book

Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Language Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Merleau-Ponty's status as a philosopher of perception is well-established, but his distinctive contributions to the philosophy and phenomenology of language have yet to be fully appreciated.

Through detailed, clear, and accessible analyses of Merleau-Ponty's views of linguistic meaning, expression, and understanding, and by tracing the evolution and development of these views throughout the course of his philosophical career, Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Language offers a global and comprehensive picture of his engagement with the philosophy of language.

This book demonstrates that the phenomenology of language is essential for grasping the meaning and motivations behind some of Merleau-Ponty's most celebrated philosophical contributions.

It argues that his philosophy of language should take on a central role in our appraisal of the development and basic goals of his thought. And it suggests that the success of phenomenology's return to the 'things themselves' must be judged not only by the evidence of intuition, but also by the labour of expression.
