Objections to the reversibility thesis
Merleau-Ponty's reversibility thesis argues that self, other and world are inherently relational, interdependent at the level of ontology. What is at stake in the reversibility thesis is whether it overcomes sceptical objections in ensuring real communication and avoiding solipsism in ensuring real difference; the Other must be a genuine irreducible Other.
