Chapter Summary

Merleau-Ponty explains about "the feel" in the Phenomenology: "Between my sensation and me, there was always the thickness of acquired native that prevents my experience of being clear for itself". For the phenomenological reduction, the phenomenon of language presents one of the most important difficulties, and opposes one of the strongest resistances. What turns out fundamentally problematic, for Merleau-Ponty as for Fink, is the essential interlacing between the language and the native domain of the world of life. To indicate, briefly, the importance of the relationship between silence of things and philosophical speech for the development of phenomenological ontology of the last period of work of Merleau-Ponty - to favor this ontological side of influences and continuity of this aspect of his thought - let us question further before the provision of "astonishment" before the world. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Fink; language; Merleau-Ponty; phenomenological ontology; philosophical speech; silence of things
