About This Item

Paris: Presses Universitaires de France, 1942. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. MERLEAU-PONTY, Maurice. La Structure du Comportement (The Structure of Behavior); Presses Universitaires de France, Paris, 1942. Half-title + TP + [v]-viii = Introduction + [1]-314 + [315] = Printing information, Octavo. First Edition.


First edition of Merleau-Ponty s first book with the verso of the title page noting: Dépot Légal / 1re édition .. .. .. 30 novembre 1942

Merleau-Ponty s first book which served as the underlying basis for his doctorate. Heavily influenced by Hegel, The Structure of Behavior rejects the popular objectivism, most evident in psychological behaviorism of the time. However, Merleau-Ponty similarly rejects the popular neo-Kantian intellectualism that would have embraced a subjectivism as the context for objectivity. Here Merleau-Ponty asserts that mind and body are not two separate substances idea and matter but rather, asserts the inseparability of the two as essential for any true understanding of the human person, both biologically and psychologically.


CONDITION:Very Good+ in original light-green wraps printed in black and green with lettering and designs on the front & back covers and the spine. The spine is a bit worn with minor loss to head and heel. Light pencil marginalia (ink on a couple pages). A lovely copy of this very scarce book.
