HFIA03703U Module 1: Classical Philosophical Text in Phenomenology: Phenomenology of Perception

Volume 2014/2015
Master in Philosophy

The nature of perception constitutes a core problem in both phenomenology and analytic philosophy of mind. In this course, we will study central parts of Merleau-Ponty’s classic Phenomenology of Perception (using the new translation by Donald Landes, Routledge, 2012) with a view to unveiling the account of perception Merleau-Ponty articulates and defends in that work. We will compare Merleau-Ponty’s account with some recent analytic accounts of the nature of perceptual experience.
