Richir, M., Substance and the "seeing" the essence in the late Merleau-Ponty.
Translated by Josef Fulka. Parva Philosophica, vol. 18. Prague: Philosophy. 2011.
One of the central chapters of Richer's Phenomena, Time and Being focuses on the analysis of the late Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy (especially the Visible and Invisible). Its meaning lies in two respects. On the one hand, it is an important contribution to merleau-pontian interpretations, namely the notoriously difficult question of Merleau-Ponty's concept of essence, and on the other hand it can be observed how Richir, one of the most important late phenomenologists in France, begins to develop his own phenomenological project, which will be fully conceived in his following writings, based on merleau-pontian fundaments.
