Art, Language and determine in Merleau-Ponty: tours in Hyper-Dialectic considers Merleau-Ponty's later ontology of language within the mild of his "figured philosophy,” which locations the murals on the centre of its research. Kaushik argues that, for the reason that for Merleau-Ponty the murals actualizes a smart ontology that may rather be invisible to the heritage of dialectics, it undermines the elemental distinction among being and linguistic structures.

Art, Language and determine in Merleau-Ponty takes up the novel job of the figured philosophy to render brilliant and linguistic areas sooner than the concept in their separation. Kaushik situates Merleau-Ponty's criticisms of Saussure's linguistic approach, in addition to a extra common repudiation of the act of inscribing in favour of an abstracted textual that means, during this context. Following the artists most vital to Merleau-Ponty's personal writings on paintings, resembling Paul Klee and his fascination with hieroglyphics, and lengthening those analyses to newer twenty first Century artists reminiscent of Cy Twombly, Kaushik takes an expedition into the areas the place paintings and language, picture and textual content, drawing and writing, determine and discourse, are interlaced in Merleau-Ponty's final ontology. In view of those intersections, Kaushik eventually argues, the murals supplies us the areas the place the chances of philosophy, either previous and destiny, dwell. because the first sustained therapy into the connection among paintings and language, this can be a massive contribution to Meleau-Ponty's philosophy and students of aesthetics.
