Access to previously unavailable texts, in particular Merleau-Ponty’s lectures on institution and expression, has presented scholars with new resources for thinking about time, memory, and history. These essays represent the best of this new direction in scholarship; they deepen our understanding of self and world in relation to time and memory; and they give occasion to reexamine Merleau-Ponty’s contribution and relevance to contemporary Continental philosophy.
This volume is essential reading for scholars of phenomenology and French philosophy, as well as for the many readers across the arts, humanities, and social sciences who continue to draw insight and inspiration from Merleau-Ponty.

Market Power and Business Strategy consists of seven modules, not chapters. Chapters, says Morris, imply a linear approach to learning and strategy. His book calls for a circular approach. Readers can begin the book anywhere, and will find after finishing it that the effect on their understanding is cumulative. Not only will they get a new way of considering individual functions within the organization, but they will also be struck by how these functions can be combined. The key is in the operating system. It's common to all functions, but because of the way Western thought has developed, the commonality has become hidden. Morris uncovers it by examining in detail the two ways of thinking, Western and Eastern, pluralistic and unitary, and compares them in the contexts of marketing, human resource, finance, and other resources that exist within organizations. In doing so, he focuses sharply on marketing, in the belief that marketing strategy cannot be formulated in a vacuum. It must be derived from all intra-organizational disciplines, just as they must build their own strategies with markets and marketing uppermost in mind. With examples from everyday business situations and a wrap-up module that proves his thinking is by no means Utopian, Morris will challenge many strongly held beliefs, to which he would respond: that's the best way to learn.
