Since the 1950s, art and philosophy have continued to return to the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and his assertion of the primacy of perception.

Influenced by Husserl and Heidegger and an associate of Sartre and de Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty developed a range of evocative concepts that have informed the production, criticism and theory of art.

The only phenomenologist of the first half of the twentieth century to engage with the sciences and psychology as well as art, literature, linguistics and politics, his exploration of the situated character of embodied perception and how it unfolds over time in social, historical and political contexts reveals a concept of the self that is "caught up in things, that has a front and a back, a past and a future".
