Nature and Logos: A Whiteheadian Key to Merleau-Ponty’s Fundamental Thought
by William S. Hamrick and Jan Van der Veken

“This is the first book-length account of how Maurice Merleau-Ponty used certain texts by Alfred North Whitehead to develop an ontology based on nature, and how he could have used other Whitehead texts that he did not know in order to complete his last ontology. This account is enriched by several of Merleau-Ponty’s unpublished writings not previously available in English . . .”
