PHIL 757

European Continental Philosophy 1


Description

The phenomenological movement founded by Edmund Husserl has exercised a profound influence over twentieth-century thought. In this course we explore the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908–61), one of the most influential phenomenologists and a philosopher who continues to have significance for contemporary philosophy. We shall study the major lines of Merleau-Ponty’s thought, including his phenomenological analyses of the body, perception, intersubjectivity, painting and history. Required text: Thomas Baldwin (ed.), Maurice Merleau-Ponty: Basic Writings. Routledge, 2003.
