Chapter Summary

The question that author wishes to pose in this paper concerns the nature of appearance in Merleau-Ponty. Building on the project of the transcendental genesis of intentionality, in its own way and above all with its emphasis on corporeality, Merleau-Ponty pushes forward into heretofore unconsidered aspects of this project. This chapter adumbrates Merleau-Ponty's approach, focusing again on the question of the nature of appearing, it is on the question of the phenomenality. The point of departure is the observation that, in his philosophy, Edmund Husserl posits an elementary phenomenological difference between lived-experience and its object, which can be regarded as the decisive approach to the question concerning the nature of appearance. Insofar as there is no pure phenomenon, and the method must take account of this circumstance, this will be authoritative for the status of phenomenality in Merleau-Ponty's newly fashioned phenomenology.

Keywords: decisive approach; Edmund Husserl; lived-experience; Merleau-Ponty; pure phenomenon
