The Communicative Body

About the Author

John O'Neill is a translator and a specialist in Merleau-Ponty. He is a Distinguished Research Professor of Sociology at York University, Toronto.
"Comes to us in a 'time of need,' deftly positioned as a response to the proliferating currents of recent continental thought (and I am particularly thinking of deconstructionism and postmodernism) that often tend to lose sight of the lasting accomplishments of Merleau-Ponty." --Calvin O. Schrag
