about this story

As a philosopher, Maurice Merleau- Ponty published his first book of political philosophy in 1947,Humanism and Terror, an essay on the Communist Problem, 1969. A collection of essays concerning the arts, philosophy, and politics, Sens et non-sense(1996b/1964), appeared in 1948. In the fall of 1948, Merleau-Ponty delivered a series of seven weekly lectures on French national radio that were subsequently published as Causeries 1948 and many books has been published.

He was also awarded “First Prize in Philosophy” at Louis-le-Grand in 1924–25. He attended the École Normale Supérieure from 1926 to 1930, where he befriended Simone de Beauvoir and Claude Lévi-Straus. Some evidence suggests that, during these years, Merleau-Ponty authored a novel, Nord. He believes that for every work you do, it should be completed to be given a honor so that even if he dies we will still remember his creations.
