From this, Descartes concludes that: The nature of matter, or of body considered in general, does not consist in its being a thing that has hardness or weight, or colour, or any other sensible property, but simply its being a thing that has extension in length, breadth, and depth.[21] Here Descartes claims that extension (res extensa), in length, breadth, and depth, is the essence of corporeal bodies. Indeed, as Mark Hansen explains, the "body is the sensible itselfthe sensible incarnated as sensible, that is, beyond the distinction between sensing and sensed" (Hansen 2005, p. 132) As Merleau-Ponty explains, for Descartes painting bears little or no ontological power, it merely ''causes us to see, without real objects, just as we see in everyday life'' (EM, p. For Descartes, then, objects and ideas are not perceived through the senses, but exist with the same necessity as the cogitobecause they are part of it. The Philosophy of Merleau-Ponty. It is, then, the very prevalence of the metaphor of thought as vision that hides the reduction of vision to the mastery of touch.[22] Descartes' fateful error, then, was not so much in taking inspiration from the techniques of painting and drawing, but rather in to treating these techniques as being absolute, as if they offered an unimpeachable insight into the nature of vision. Descartes, Ren (1959). Crucially, this ''integrated core''[6] is seen by Merleau-Ponty as ontologically prior to the 'scientific' characterisation of the senses as discrete (in the mathematical sense) heterogeneous zones.


Ed. [11] Sinclair 2007, p. Trans. When, for example, we wish to understand how we see the location of objects, we have no other recourse than to suppose the soul to be capable, knowing where the parts of its body are, of 'transferring its attention from there' to all the points of space that lie along the prolongation of its bodily members. How to cite item . Smith. 134), extension is tantamount to height and breadth, which give themselves as a juxtaposition of simultaneous points. 133). [13] See Matthews 2002, p.


[21] Descartes 1959, p. One need only recall the titles of his books and articles, or list the artists that feature in them. (EM, p. Yet if things do encroach on one another, for the Cartesian this is, on the one hand, only because 'they are outside of one another,' and on the other hand because, for the sensible observer, who is among them, the things in the foreground necessarily occlude those behind. In any event, what secures their continuity is Merleau-Ponty's enduring critique of modern philosophical thought; a thought which ''manipulates things and gives up living in them'' (EM 121); ''a thinking which looks on from above'' (EM 121); a philosophy that secured human transcendence only by abstracting it from the world. Matthews, E. by Michael B. by T. 148 and Gilmore 2006, p.292 [14] Dastur 1988, p.


Despite this, we should not think that Eye and Mind represents an abandonment of the earlier work; it gathers up, and preserves, the truth of what is expressed there, but on a deeper ontological register. The Cartesian conception of space is a conception of extension (res extensa). In so far as the stuff of the world is reduced by this concept of space to mere extensionitself conceived as partes extra partes, as the simple externality of subsisting pointsit offers us a world that is purged of all ambiguity because it is purged of any force, resistance, or activity. McCleary. This is necessary not merely in order to posit a possible solution, but to appropriate the problem genealogically. On the canvas, he arranges things such that what he represents is no more than a compromise between these various different visual impressions: he strives to find a common denominator to all these perceptions by rendering each object not with the size, colours and aspect it present when the painter fixes it in his gaze but rather with the conventional size and aspect that it would present in a gaze directed at a particular vanishing point on the horizon.[15] In the passage above Merleau-Ponty gives an account of perspectiva artificialis.
