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.
Phenomenology of Perception in Japan: Current Trends and the Future, a philosophy video that is the sixth in a series on Phenomenology of Perception Around the World, is ready to launch! The launch features the video’s world premiere, followed by a discussion with its makers, Maiko Sakai, Tadashi Kawasaki, Tetsuo Sawada, Yasuyuki Sano, and Yu Miyahara, from Japan, and host David Morris (Canada). This will be followed by a question and answer session with attendees, in English (and also Japanese with English translation). The launch is via a Zoom Webinar, on 14 May 2021, 08:00-10:00 EDT (Montreal). It is free but requires registration.
