Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the characteristics of philosophy. Philosophy is a reality characterized by the sum of statements, the number of their theses, beliefs and arguments. Merleau-Ponty considers the personality of a philosopher for a specific philosophy and also the interpersonal relationships that he maintains throughout his work, and the social conditions in which his life is put into it. One of the most outstanding features of the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty is his openness to other philosophical disciplines, its consideration of other sciences and his interest in art and politics. The chapter discusses the World experience and philosophical universality. The human sciences (psychology, history, sociology) and the philosophy were discussed in a crisis situation. Merleau-Ponty shows the similarities between the sciences, the arts and politics.

Keywords: Philosophy; Merleau-Ponty; politics; philosophical universality; human sciences
