Phenomenology of Perception (Classics Series) by Maurice Merleau-Ponty

Challenging and rewarding in equal measure, Phenomenology of Perception is Merleau-Ponty's most famous work. Impressive in both scope and imagination, it uses the example of perception to return the body to the forefront of philosophy for the first time since Plato. Drawing on case studies such as brain-damaged patients from the First World War, Merleau-Ponty brilliantly shows how the body plays a crucial role not only in perception but in speech, sexuality and our relation to others.

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.

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.

A wonderful book on philosophy. Really gets thoughts churning and turning and keeps your interest. Very deep read.
