The Logos of the Living World

Merleau-Ponty, Animals, and Language

Louise Westling

A Fordham University Press Publication

Groundworks (FUP)

  • With his interest in phenomenology of perception, Merleau-Ponty seems a natural source for philosphical approaches to understanding animals, whether human or nonhuman.
  • Interest in Merleau-Ponty is rapidly growing, as is work in animal studies; this book will provide resources for scholars interested in following either.
  • The book is beautifully written and thus quite accessible.
