This is a timely and important collection of essays examining Merleau-Ponty's interrogation of the limits of philosophy. quot;Merleau-Ponty at the Limits of Art, Religion and Perceptionquot; seeks to answer the question of what lies at the limit of philosophy. The book traces the line between art and aesthetic judgment, psychology and philosophy, sacramentality and transcendence in Merleau-Ponty's life and work. Featuring essays by an international team of leading scholars, this book examines Merleau-Ponty's growing influence in art, cognitive science, psychology and religion. The result is a renewed understanding of the limits of each of these fields: in art, when the line ceases to be a line and becomes a work of art, and when art ceases to be art alone and manifests a philosophy; in religion, when sensuality transfigures into sacramentality or faith becomes religion; in philosophy, when the subject ceases to be merely temporal, but becomes temporality; and, in psychology and cognitive science, when perception becomes normative, when our bodies go beyond physical extension to become places of skill and feeling, when theory becomes therapy, practice or habit. quot;Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophyquot; presents cutting-edge scholarship in the field of modern European thought. The wholly original arguments, perspectives and research findings in titles in this series make it an important and stimulating resource for students and academics from across the discipline.
