PHIL 132: Phenomenology: Merleau-Ponty (PHIL 232)

(Graduate students register for 232.) French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty wrote that we are neither angels nor machines but living beings. In contrast to both a first person introspective analysis and the third person scientific approach, Merleau-Ponty aimed to describe the basic invariant structures of human life by using the phenomenological method. The result was a new concept of experience that is essentially embodied. In this class, you will learn about the phenomenological method and read Merleau-Ponty's now classic text Phenomenology of Perception. Prerequisite: one prior course in Philosophy, or permission of instructor.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4
Instructors: Jackson, G. (PI)
