Merleau-Ponty and structuralism

Special Issue 2

Edited by Beata Stawarska, Patrick Flack

The eight essays included in this issue offer a structuralist re-reading of Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy and/or testify to its central role within the contemporary history of phenomenology and structuralism as well as of Gestalt Psychology, Deconstruction, Deleuze’s philosophy, Feminism, and other approaches that accompanied and often contested basic tenets of phenomenological and structuralist thought. The first half of the issue is devoted to pre-Second-World War structuralism and its influence on the genesis and development of Merleau-Ponty’s work. The second half explorespost-Second-World War structuralism (and post-structuralism) and addresses some of the criticisms routinely directed at Merleau-Ponty.
