This book provides an important bridge between analytic philosophy and the phenomenological tradition. The author presents Merleau-Ponty's critique of classical theories of perception to an analytic audience and shows that the objections raised by Merleau-Ponty provide some unique insights into the defects of theories such as Descartes' and Berkeley's. Following a detailed examination of Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology, the author concludes that classical theories of perception, based as they are on the dualist metaphysics of modern science, cannot account for the phenomenon of perception. Unlike many texts in the phenomenological tradition, this book is written from the analytic standpoint with the intention of making Merleau-Ponty's work more accessible to Anglo-American philosophers.
