Understanding Merleau-Ponty, Understanding Modernism revises the concept of modernism by examining the kinship of method and concern between Maurice Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology and modernist art, literature, film and neurophysiological discoveries, opening up the complexities of the philosopher's phenomenology of perception to a broader audience across the arts. Rather than promoting phenomenology as a theoretical 'tool' for analysing selected texts or artworks, the aim of this volume is to bring Merleau-Ponty's work into dialogue with modernism. An important resource for anyone interested in the links between modernism and philosophy, Understanding Merleau-Ponty, Understanding Modernism offers close readings of Merleau-Ponty's key texts, explores modernist literature in light of his thought, and provides an extended glossary of Merleau-Ponty's central terms and concepts.
