The world of perception

Maurice Merleau-Ponty

Translated by Oliver Davis


Central to Maurice Merleau-Ponty's thought was the idea that human understanding comes from our bodily experience of the world that we perceive. This title provides a guide to a whole universe of experience, from the pursuit of scientific knowledge, through the psychic life of animals to the glories of the art of Paul Cezanne.
