"An invaluable collection. One of the most important thinkers of
the twentieth century, Merleau-Ponty has been long overdue for
serious philosophical reassessment in the English-speaking world.
Here, finally, in a single volume, readers can appreciate the full
breadth and subtlety of his groundbreaking work."
-Taylor Carman, Barnard College, Columbia University
"An excellent anthology, which brings out both the range and the depth of one of the twentieth century's most perceptive thinkers."
-Jonathan Ree, editor of "The Kierkegaard Reader (2001)
"This book will make an excellent introduction and guide for professional philosophers, as well as a good course book for undergraduate and postgraduate students."
