Abstract:

The philosophical contributions of French phenomenologist, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, carry great untapped potential for theologians thinking through some of the central affirmations of the Christian faith. This exploration is structured against the background of the fundamental interrelation between three ""bodies"" in Merleau-Ponty''s thought and in Christian theology: the material as such or ""nature"" (the corporeal), the human body as a living body (the corporal), and the social body (the corporate—including language and tradition). Merleau-Ponty''s philosophy offers a finessed and non-reduct.
