Quando il libro uscì attrasse soprattutto consistent with le affinità con i motivi dell’esistenzialismo. Quando venne tradotto negli anni Sessanta Enzo Paci ne fece il manifesto della fenomenologia concreta. Oggi esso è un crocevia inevitabile sia in keeping with i filosofi dell’esperienza sia in line with gli scienziati della percezione. Corpo, intersoggettività e una nuova thought di soggetto sono i concetti di Merleau-Ponty da cui los angeles filosofia non può tornare indietro. D’altronde lo scavalcamento di ogni dualismo tra scienze della natura e scienze dello spirito, nutrito da una miriade di descrizioni puntuali, fa di questo libro anche l. a. base indiscussa di gran parte del lavoro sperimentale sulla percezione.
