Merleau-Ponty wrote that philosophy was, "A way of relearning to look at the world." Since the 1950s, artists, art historians, and philosophers have been continually influenced by his work. But how to make sense of Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology and his belief that perception should be questioned above all else? This accessible guide explores both his thought and its impact on visual art. Examining work by artists, including Paul CÚzanne, Vito Acconci, Katy la Rocca, and Dan Graham, it presents Merleau-Ponty's engagement with the body, interpersonal relations, the senses, and the environment through concrete examples. Exploring the wide-ranging and interdisciplinary nature of Merleau-Ponty's work, this book unpacks his legacy and continued relevance, encouraging the reader to look with fresh eyes at art and its place in the world.

About the Author:

Andrew Fisher is a Lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University, London. He has published several articles on phenomenology, Merleau-Ponty and photography, and is a founding editor of the journal, Philosophy of Photography.
