The Primacy of Perception Paperback / softback
Part of the Studies in Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy series
The Primacy of Perception brings together a number of important studies by Maurice Merleau-Ponty that appeared in various publications from 1947 to 1961.
The title essay, which is in essence a presentation of the underlying thesis of his Phenomenology of Perception, is followed by two courses given by Merleau-Ponty at the Sorbonne on phenomenological psychology. "Eye and Mind" and the concluding chapters present applications of Merleau-Ponty's ideas to the realms of art, philosophy of history, and politics.
Taken together, the studies in this volume provide a systematic introduction to the major themes of Merleau-Ponty's philosophy.
