Description

M. C. Dillon (1938-2005) was widely regarded as a world-leading Merleau-Ponty scholar. His book Merleau-Ponty's Ontology (1988) is recognized as a classic text that revolutionized the philosophical conversation about the great French phenomenologist. Dillon followed that book with two others: Semiological Reductionism, a critique of early-1990s linguistic reductionism, and Beyond Romance, a richly developed theory of love. At the time of his death, Dillon had nearly completed two further books to which he was passionately committed. The first one offers a highly original interpretation of Nietzsche's ontology of becoming. The second offers a detailed ethical theory based on Merleau-Ponty's account of carnal intersubjectivity.

The Ontology of Becoming and the Ethics of Particularity collects these two manuscripts written by a distinguished philosopher at the peak of his powers-manuscripts that, taken together, offer a distinctive and powerful view of human life and ethical relations.
