Baptiste, Linda (Salt, Linda A.)

This paper will attempt to analyze both Kant's and Merleau-Ponty's inquiry into man's experience of space. Kant declares space to be an "a priori" intuition of the sensibility, while Merleau-Ponty defines space as the primordial awareness of the body. In the course of this paper, I hope to not only examine each of these statements, but to also consider the implications which arise from these statements. Merleau-Ponty in his analysis of space, furthermore, stresses the differences between himself and Kant through his criticisms of Kantian space. Hence, the other task of this paper will be to weigh his criticisms against Kant, as well as to compare Merleau-Ponty's own account of space -- viz. its essential differences and similarities with Kant's investigation of space.
