Philosopher of the Month!

Maurice Merleau-Ponty


“A subject under mescalin finds a piece of iron, strikes the window-sill with it and exclaims: ‘This is magic’: the trees are growing greener. The barking of a dog is found to attract light in an indescribable way, and is re-echoed in the right foot”

Merleau-Ponty, Maurice. Phenomenology of Perception. (London: Routledge, 2002). First published as Phénomènologie de la perception (Paris: Gallimard, 1945). p. 229
