Merleau-Ponty, M., The Structure of Behaviour. Translated by Jiří Pechar et al. Prague: Filosofia. 2008.

The starting point of the analyses that Merleau-Ponty presents in this book is the critique of conception which understands the behaviour of living organisms as the causal effects of isolated neurophysiological processes. We find here, for example, the critique of Pavlov's theory of conditioned reflexes. The relationship of the psychic order to the vital order and the relation of the spiritual to psychic is perceived by the author as an integrational one, thank to which a certain structure may become a part of the structure superior to it. The outcome of the research is then a conception that follows the basic ideas of Husserl's phenomenology.
