PhP Around the World

The International Merleau-Ponty Circle and Chiasmi International are mounting a project to solicit and curate a series of video broadcasts about this book, from around the world. The Phenomenology of Perception Around the World: A 75th Anniversary Broadcast Series is meant to echo Merleau-Ponty’s own 1948 radio broadcasts about philosophy, dedicated to the topic of the world as revealed by phenomenology, and transcribed in Causeries 1948 and translated in The World of Perception. The series videos are available on Vimeo here.

Merleau-Ponty and the Toronto Seminar: A Story of Philosophical Community, the fourth video in our series, will premiere on April 16 2021, 16:00-17:30 via Zoom Webinar. The launch event will feature the world premiere of the film, followed by a discussion of it with its makers and interviewees Laura McMahon, John Russon, Kirsten Jacobson, Scott Marratto and Kym Maclaren (Canada & USA) with host David Morris (Canada), and then a question and answer session with the audience. The launch event is free but requires registration.
