Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the changes to be made in the text when philosopher decided to publish a revised excerpt in modern times, in June and July, 1952, in the months following his appointment at the College de France. It does seem that it was in the months before the redesign of The Prose of the world or the end of 1951, Merleau-Ponty interrupted the writing of his text. Having highlighted the need to address the metaphysical question of language and those of sense of sense in reference to Sartre, Merleau-Ponty indicates the need for third part of his work, to clarify the relationship between literature, poetry and feel. This chapter attempts to clarify the link between philosophy and literary language or between philosophy and literature itself. Merleau-Ponty tries to explore what is philosophy or what is the language of philosophy. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: literary language; Merleau-Ponty; nature; philosophy; Sartre; silent prose of world; Sorbonne
