By Rajiv Kaushik

Art, Language and determine in Merleau-Ponty: tours in Hyper-Dialectic considers Merleau-Ponty's later ontology of language within the gentle of his "figured philosophy,” which areas the murals on the centre of its research. Kaushik argues that, when you consider that for Merleau-Ponty the murals actualizes a wise ontology that may rather be invisible to the heritage of dialectics, it undermines the basic distinction among being and linguistic structures.

Art, Language and determine in Merleau-Ponty takes up the unconventional job of the figured philosophy to render brilliant and linguistic areas sooner than the concept in their separation. Kaushik situates Merleau-Ponty's criticisms of Saussure's linguistic process, in addition to a extra common repudiation of the act of inscribing in favour of an abstracted textual which means, during this context. Following the artists most crucial to Merleau-Ponty's personal writings on paintings, resembling Paul Klee and his fascination with hieroglyphics, and increasing those analyses to more moderen twenty first Century artists akin to Cy Twombly, Kaushik takes an day trip into the areas the place paintings and language, photograph and textual content, drawing and writing, determine and discourse, are interlaced in Merleau-Ponty's final ontology. In view of those intersections, Kaushik finally argues, the murals provides us the areas the place the chances of philosophy, either earlier and destiny, dwell. because the first sustained therapy into the connection among paintings and language, this is often a huge contribution to Meleau-Ponty's philosophy and students of aesthetics.
