His thought itself addresses and integrates a considerable breadth of disciplines, primarily but certainly not limited to the history of philosophy, clinical psychology, cognitive science, human development, education, and even politics. Somewhat more recently his work has enjoyed a sizable resurgence in auxiliary areas of research including feminism, ecophenomenology, deep ecology, philosophy of language, and architecture just to name a few. This resurgence in Merleau-Ponty’s thought is certainly a welcome and exciting proposition for this reviewer, and I look forward to increasingly more interdisciplinary integration of his work and research inﬂuenced by his legacy to come.
