Cimetière du Père-Lachaise (continued): #17: Maurice Merleau-Ponty

14 MARS 1908
PARIS 3 MAI 1961'

Maurice was a leading philosopher of phenomenology and an editor of Sartre's Les Temps modernes (est. 1945), although his rift with Sartre – over several issues but essentially politics – came in 1952. He followed Edmund Husserl's philosphy, a major work being La Phénoménologie de la Perception (1945).
