Northwestern University Press is proud to publish important works of phenomenology and existential philosophy, including a long list of notable books by Maurice Merleau-Ponty, including The Visible and the Invisible, Signs, and The Merleau-Ponty Reader, edited by Leonard Lawlor and Ted Toadvine.
In January of 2022, the Press will publish The Possibility of Philosophy, which presents the notes that Merleau‑Ponty prepared for three courses he taught at the Collège de France: “The Possibility of Philosophy Today,” given in the spring semester of 1959, and “Cartesian Ontology and Ontology Today” and “Philosophy and Nonphilosophy since Hegel,” both given in the spring semester of 1961. The last two courses remain incomplete due to Merleau-Ponty’s unexpected death on May 3, 1961.
