Barclay M. W. (2000) The inadvertent emergence of a phenomenological perspective in the philosophy of cognitive psychology and psychoanalytic developmental psychology. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology, 20(2): 140–166. Fulltext at
Excerpt: The phenomenological perspective described by M. Merleau-Ponty, particularly in his Phenomenology of Perception (1962), seems to be emerging in the context of contemporary developmental research, theories of communication, metaphor theory, and cognitive neuroscience. This emergence is not always accompanied by reference to Merleau-Ponty, however, or appropriate interpretation. In some cases, the emergence of the perspective seems rather inadvertent. The purpose of this essay is to ferret out some of the points which contemporary thinking has in common with Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology. Though it may appear that the examples chosen for this essay might be scrutinized separately, the thread that ties them together is Merleau-Ponty’s work.
