Hegel and Merleau-Ponty on modernism and postmodernism Details Title Hegel and Merleau-Ponty on modernism and postmodernism Contributor(s) Low, Douglas (author) Located In International Philosophical Quarterly ISSN 0019-0365 Date 2010 Notes Issue 199 Abstract This essay attempts to provide detailed evidence for Charles Taylor’s claim that both Hegel and Merleau-Ponty follow Kant’s refutation of idealism in an effort to take a stand against Modernism’s claim that human knowledge of the world is reducible to a conceptual representation of it. For both the Hegel of Phenomenology of Mind and Merleau-Ponty throughout his career, human consciousness and knowledge must embrace and make sense of a world that is always already there. This stand will be made against Postmodernism as well.
