Review Articles / Research in Phenomenolog y 37 (2007) 115–143 125 Merleau-Ponty and an Ethics of Space David Morris. The Sense of Space . Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 2004. ix + 220 pp. In the Sense of Space David Morris investigates the space of lived experience, what he describes as “perceived space as we experience it before objectifying it” (VII). The stated goal is to “reopen” Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenolog y of Perception , and so return to the discussions of the body and its spatiality that are there initiated. To do so, Morris sets aside Merleau-Ponty’s posthumously published The Visible and the Invisible with its perceived challenge to his earlier phenomenological investigations (vii-viii, and 58–59), developing an analysis of both the spatial schema of the body, and its engagement with the world around it, its place, that reminds us that the Phenomenolog y of Percep- tion is not so easily surpassed. What Morris has produced is a subtle retelling of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenological story, one that in emphasizing the role of movement in the development and expression of the “body schema [ schéma corporeal ],” leads us even more emphatically to ethical questions. Morris introduces his study of lived space
