Art and Institution examines how for Merleau-Ponty the murals opens up, with out conceptualizing, the development of being. Rajiv Kaushik treats Merleau-Ponty’s renderings of the paintings – particularly in his later writings throughout the interval starting from 1952-1961 – as a direction into the being that precedes phenomenology.

Replete with references to Merleau-Ponty’s reflections on Matisse, Cézanne, Proust and others, and that includes Kaushik’s personal unique reflections on a number of artistic endeavors, this ebook is guided via the thought that artwork doesn't iterate the findings of phenomenology a lot because it permits phenomenology to ultimately become aware of what, as an issue of precept, it seeks: the very beginning of expertise that's not itself on hand to notion. Kaushik is therefore concerned about the ways that the murals restores the primary of establishment, sooner than the intentional buildings of awareness, in order that phenomenology may possibly settle questions touching on ontological distinction, the origination of value, and the connection among interiority and exteriority.
