At the core of Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy is a sustained argument for the foundational role perception plays in understanding the world as well as engaging with the world. Like the other major phenomenologists, Merleau-Ponty expressed his philosophical insights in writings on art, literature, linguistics, and politics. Merleau-Ponty emphasized the body as the primary site of knowing the world, a corrective to the long philosophical tradition of placing consciousness as the source of knowledge, and maintained that the body and that which it perceived could not be disentangled from each other. Merleau-Ponty supported Soviet communism and his endorsement of the Soviet show trials and prison camps was published as Humanism and Terror in 1947, though he would later denounce Soviet terror as being counter to the purportedly humanist aims of the revolution. Maurice Merleau-Ponty was born in 1908 in Rochefort-sur-Mer, Charente-Maritime, France. His father died in 1913 when Merleau-Ponty was five years old. An article published in French newspaper Le Monde in October 2014 makes the case of recent discoveries about Merleau-Ponty’s likely authorship of the novel Nord.
Jacques Heller was a pseudonym of the 20-year-old Merleau-Ponty. 1935 he taught at the Lycée de Chartres. After teaching at the University of Lyon from 1945 to 1948, Merleau-Ponty lectured on child psychology and education at the Sorbonne from 1949 to 1952. Besides his teaching, Merleau-Ponty was also political editor for the leftist Les Temps modernes from the founding of the journal in October 1945 until December 1952. Merleau-Ponty died suddenly of a stroke in 1961 at age 53, apparently while preparing for a class on René Descartes. He is buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
