Merleau-Ponty at the Limits of Art, Religion, and Perception (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy)

This e-book poses the query of what lies on the restrict of philosophy. via shut experiences of French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty's existence and paintings, the authors learn one of many 20th century's so much interdisciplinary philosophers whose suggestion intersected with and contributed to the practices of artwork, psychology, literature, religion and philosophy.

Husserl’s Position in the School of Brentano

Phenomenology, in accordance with Husserl, is intended to be philosophy as rigorous technology. It was once Franz Brentano who encouraged him to pursue the fitting of clinical philosophy. even though Husserl all started his philosophical profession as an orthodox disciple of Brentano, he finally started to have doubts approximately this orientation.

Transcendental phenomenology presumed to have triumph over the vintage mind-body dichotomy when it comes to cognizance. should still we certainly dissolve the specificity of human cognizance by means of explaining human event in its a number of sense-giving modalities throughout the physiological services of the mind? the current selection of reports addresses this important query not easy such "naturalizing" reductionism from a number of angles.

Example text

This god will set up this simple but extreme opposition [between earth and world] over its people as the paths upon which this people wanders beyond itself, in order to ¤nd once again its essence and to exhaust the moment of its history” (GA 65, 398–99; cf. CP, 279–80). And it is the task of those who belong to the future, to the poets above all—here Hölderlin stands as exemplary—to summon this moment into being. 27 It goes without saying that this is a very different conception of politics than one typically expects from a theory of political life and its possibilities: here there is no utopian vision, no normative basis of critique, no set of standards of good and evil.

So Heidegger writes that “it is no accident that ‘modernity’ brings historicity [the technologized conception of history and its task] to genuine domination. This domination today (in the beginning of the decisive period of modernity) already extends itself so far that . . history [in the proper sense] is pushed into what is history-less. . Blood and race become the bearers of history. Prehistory now gives historicity the character of legitimacy” (GA 65, 493; cf. CP, 347). This is the ¤nal obliteration of the life of time and history in human being.

It does, however, point to the second issue, which I consider a necessary concern for one who would breach the extraordinary dif¤culty of Contributions, namely, the context in which this work is to be read. There are three sorts of contexts which help frame any reading of Contributions: ¤rst, the historical moment in which it was written; second, the philosophical itinerary which was guiding Heidegger at this stage in his work; and third, the dialogue partners Heidegger had in this project of forging a new and revolutionary conception of the task of thinking.
