P. Locke, R. McCann (eds.), Merleau-Ponty

Brian W. Dunst

pp. 469-475

It appears as though Maurice Merleau-Ponty has, over the past three-quarters of a century, cemented his belonging in the annals of the most influential of thinkers. His thought itself addresses and integrates a considerable breadth of disciplines, primarily but certainly not limited to the history of philosophy, clinical psychology, cognitive science, human development, education, and even politics. Somewhat more recently his work has enjoyed a sizable resurgence in auxiliary areas of research including feminism, ecophenomenology, deep ecology, philosophy of language, and architecture just to name a few. This resurgence in Merleau-Ponty’s thought is certainly a welcome and exciting proposition for this reviewer, and I look forward to increasingly more interdisciplinary integration of his work and research influenced by his legacy to come.
