Merleau-Ponty on politics, history, and violence
Merleau-Ponty's political philosophy readily lends itself to division into two main periods. The first, Marxian, period began in 1944 and ended in mid 1950. The second, post-Marxian or "liberal," period began in mid 1950 and lasted until his death in 1961.
