Merleau-Ponty’s “Soft” Ontology of Truth as Falsification

(p.174) 6 Merleau-Ponty’s “Soft” Ontology of Truth as Falsification
Ambiguity and the Absolute

Frank Chouraqui

Fordham University Press

This chapter follows the ultimate consequences of Merleau-Ponty’s later ontology in which Being becomes the name of a falsifying force that operates through the time of history by way of the time of predication. This results in a thesis strictly parallel to Nietzsche’s final view, in which Merleau-Ponty comes to regard Being as a process by which self-differentiation falsifies itself by presenting itself as self-identity. “Truth” is the name of the resulting illusion.
