Childlike Peace in Merleau-Ponty and Levinas: Intersubjectivity as Dialectical Spiral
Drawing on the work of 20th century philosophers Merleau-Ponty and Levinas, and informed by recent advances in cognitive neuroscience and child development, this work develops a phenomenological description of the parent-child relationship in order to articulate an account of intersubjectivity that is fundamentally ethically-oriented, dialogical, and mutually dynamic.
