On this page, I hope to connect to phenomenologists who speak to perception and human embodiment. This includes Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger, Sartre, Ihde, and others. My other blog contains more details about the general viewpoints of phenomenology and post-intentional phenomenology as a research methodology.

Merleau-Ponty approaches phenomenology in a similar manner to both Heiddeger and Husserl. He was interested in notions of being (as embodied) – a Heideggarian concern. Although not in agreement in Husserl’s reductionist, “transcendent” phenomenological stance, he was in agreement with Husserl about the “crisis” in the European sciences – where science sees itself as accounting for what is real in the world. The video below includes Merleau-Ponty’s talk about the perception of space.
