Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that what Merleau–Ponty is attempting to do, perhaps in all of his work, is to reconceive sensing, to use Merleau–Ponty's French, to reconceive, sentir. But to do this, one must privilege a particular sense, more precisely, a specific experience. It argues that Merleau–Ponty privileges vision—and one should not overlook the ambiguity of this term.

Keywords: Merleau–Ponty; sensing; sentir; vision
