MetadataShow full item record
The author examines Merleau-Ponty's discussion of consciousness and nature in The Structure of Behavior. Perception is the foundation upon which all knowledge rests. The study of perception will bring us closer to the lived reality of experience. The author presents James Gibson's empiricist writing, Senses Considered as Perceptual Systems, in order to establish Merleau-Ponty's work as a constructive philosophy.
