Reading Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception Part 3
The Phenomenology of Perception reading group at the Centre for Cultural Studies will start up again in the new year. We’ll be looking at the two final sections of Part I on The Body. So far much of the discussion has been focused on how Merleau-Ponty might be used politically or ethically. I’ll try and write up my notes on this (which I suspect will take the form of a list of questions rather than a sustained narrative) when I get time.
The next meeting will take place on Thursday 12 January 2012 at 2pm.
G1, Laurie Grove Baths, Laurie Grove, New Cross, London.
