Merleau-Ponty and structuralism

Acta Structuralica

Beata Stawarska, Patrick R. Flack (eds)


The eight essays included in this issue offer a structuralist re-reading of Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy and/or testify to its central role within the contemporary history of phenomenology and structuralism as well as of Gestalt Psychology, Deconstruction, Deleuze’s philosophy, Feminism, and other approaches that accompanied and often contested basic tenets of phenomenological and structuralist thought. The first half of the issue is devoted to pre-Second-World War structuralism and its influence on the genesis and development of Merleau-Ponty’s work.

Idée, expression, vécu

Hermann - Paris


Il est coutume, depuis les grandes polémiques des années 1960, de considérer la phénoménologie et le structuralisme comme des traditions rivales, antagonistes. À rebours de cette doxa, les études réunies dans ce recueil retracent la longue histoire et les synergies conceptuelles fortes qui les unissent.
