When Maurice Merleau-Ponty—who had identified phenomenology as major idea in philosophy—died in 1961, he left a 200-page unfinished manuscript together with 110 pages of titled and dated working notes that were edited and published posthumously as The Visible and the Invisible (Le Visible et L’Invisible) by Claude Lefort. The text is “devoted to a critical examination of Kantian, Husserlian, Bergsonian, and Sartrean method, followed by the extraordinary ‘The Intertwining—The Chiasm,’ which reveals the central pattern of Merleau-Ponty’s own thought.”
