L’épreuve de la réalité


I take up the question of perception in Merleau-Ponty in a transversal way by emphasizing the existential approach to which this question is, from the outset, philosophically central. Perceptual life is privileged with regard to the disclosure of the human condition as incarnate and social, as grappling with the indeterminacy of the real, and as bound to a coexistence and a knowledge that both idealism and realism struggle to reconstruct. What it is about us that is engaged by the perceptual experience of reality? How does perception work? How far does it go? Merleau-Ponty responds to these three questions through an anthropology that is strongly marked by his extensive thinking about corporeality and intercorporeality; through a phenomenology that is attentive to the imaginary and desirous dimensions of our relation to the real; and through an ontology that stages the mutual exposure of flesh and being in a dynamic of faith and questioning.
