(p.31) Three Thoreau and the Body
Thoreau's Importance for Philosophy

Russell B. Goodman

Fordham University Press

Through a comparison with the phenomenology of embodiment, as practiced by such authors as Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Samuel Todes, Goodman explores the resources offered by Thoreau's writings for a philosophical understanding of the lived body. This comparison brings out the value of Thoreau's work for the phenomenology of lived experience and embodied comportment, and reveals one of the many respects in which Thoreau was a thinker ahead of his time.
