Merleau-Ponty: A Guide for the Perplexed is the ideal text for students encountering Merleau-Pontys philosophy for the first time. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, and takes the reader though the key themes in Merleau-Pontys work, casting light on complex ideas, including - crucially - his interpretations of perception, embodiment and behaviour. Most importantly this Guide for the Perplexed offers a full and authoritative explication of Merleau-Pontys phenomenological account of human behaviour.
