Chiasmi International n. 17 (Paperback)
Psychology, Phenomenology, Hermeneutics
Since the early 1990s, the thought of Maurice Merleau-Ponty has renewed exceptional interest, perceptible by the number of seminars and publications devoted to it and, even more, by the multiplication of university research who take aim. The philosophy of Merleau-Ponty has become almost classical, and its complexity and incompleteness justify an intense research activity constantly renewed.
The magazine Chiasmi, founded in 1996 and publisheded every year, has the purpose to promote an ever finer and deeper knowledge of the French philosopher and to address a specific trend, particularly characterized by criticism of Husserl's transcendentalism, the rehabilitation of the constitutive dimension of the body itself and focus on the perceptual layer. In this perspective, the journal can accommodate articles on Husserl, Heidegger and Patocka, since they help to illuminate the heritage in which Merleau-Ponty is located.
This issue pivots around three themes – namely the theoretical exchange between Merleau-Ponty and psychology, aesthetics and the philosophy of Paul Ricoeur (this year is the tenth anniversary of his death) - each containing the contributions of scientists and internationally acclaimed experts, but also young researchers.
