Phenomenology of Perception (Classics Series)

Overview

Challenging and rewarding in equal measure, Phenomenology of Perception is Merleau-Ponty's most famous work.

The work of Merleau-Ponty has never been more timely, or had more to teach us. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the embodied mind.

    Filled with garbage characters

    It's a great book but this digitized edition is near worthless. Filled with all kinds of garbage characters, most likely the result of "noise" encountered in the digitization process.
    But, it is free.

    Can be Life-Changing

    Merleau-Ponty wrote most of this book while he was a prisoner of war. It is not just academic techno-babble or logic or analysis. It is about the ability to taste life. It is about the ability to use language as a gift to discover the world and others. It is about what it means to be an authentic person. Some stuck-up philosophers think this book just repeats the same simple message over and over, and it does revolve around a theme. It has a message that if you need to hear, it can be life changing. If you feel separated from life by too much thought or too many questions, it can help articulate the psychology of living fully. At the very least, it can challenge your idea of what philosphy is supposed to be.
