The World of PerceptionThis is that rare genre, the careful popularisation, done bythe original author. In simple prose Merleau-Ponty toucheson his principal themes. He speaks about the body and theworld, the coexistence of space and things, the unfortunateoptimism of science and also the insidious stickiness ofhoney, and the mystery of anger. These lectures are slightbut not superficial: you can feel the deep consonance withLacan and the unspoken debt to Heidegger. Breton, Bataille,Blanchot, Ponge, Kafka, Proust, Czanne, and Sartre floatthrough the text, each one impeccably well cited. And it is allposed in a lovely calm tone, which I read as Merleau-Pontysdeep and unacknowledged affinity with his foil, Descartes.S TORIESJ AMES E LKINS , AUTHOROF A RT AND P ICTURES AND T EARSMerleau-Ponty is one of the seminal thinkers of the postwar period, and these short talks to a radio audience, from arelatively early moment in his writing career, show hishumane intelligence at work.M ICHAEL F RIED, J OHNS H OPKINS U NIVERSITYM AURICE M ERLEAU -P ONTYThe World of PerceptionTRANSLATED BY OLIVER DAVISFirst published in French as Causeries 1948 Editions du Seuil, 2002First published 2004by Routledge2 Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX14 4RNSimultaneously published in the USA and Canadaby Routledge29 West 35th Street, New York, NY 10001Routledge is an imprint of the Taylor & Francis GroupThis edition published
