Dan Furukawa Marques, « Political Phenomenology as Ethnographic Method », in Jérôme Mélançon (dir.) Transforming Politics with Merleau-Ponty: Thinking Beyond the State, Lanham: Rowman & Littlefield, 2021.


"The contributors to this book offer productive new readings of Merleau-Ponty’s political philosophy and of other facets of his thought. They each deploy his theories to adopt a critical stance on urgent political issues and contemporary situations within society. Each essay focuses on a different aspect of political transformation, be it at the personal, social, national, or international level. The book as a whole maps out possibilities for thinking phenomenologically about politics without a sole focus on the state, turning instead toward contemporary human experience and existence."
