about this story

Maurice Merleau-Ponty was a french philosopher and public intellectual, he was the leading academic proponent of existentialism and phenomenology in post-war France. Maurice-Ponty born on March 14, 1908 in Rochefort-sur-Mer, in the province of Charente-Maritime and studied studied at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris and took his agrégation in philosophy in 1931. Though greatly influenced by the work of Edmund Husserl, Merleau-Ponty rejected his theory of the knowledge of other persons, grounding his own theory in bodily behaviour and in perception. Merleau-Ponty was best known during his lifetime and that established him as the leading French phenomenologist of his generation. After the death in 1913 of his father, a colonial artillery captain and a knight of the Legion of Honor, he moved with his family to Paris. He would later describe his childhood as incomparably happy, and he remained very close to his mother until her death in 1953.
