Daly, A, Merleau-Ponty and the Ethics of Intersubjectivity, Palgrave Macmillan, UK, pp. 325. ISBN 9781137527431 (2016) [Authored Research Book]

This book draws on Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology, psychology, neuroscience and Buddhist philosophy to explicate Merleau-Ponty’s unwritten ethics. Daly contends that though Merleau-Ponty never developed an ethics per se, there is significant textual evidence that clearly indicates he had the intention to do so. This book highlights the explicit references to ethics that he offers and proposes that these, allied to his ontological commitments, provide the basis for the development of an ethics.
