Abstract
John Dewey, an American Pragmatist, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, a French Phenomenologist, belong to the beginning of an internal critique in the twentieth century Western narrative of philosophy. Upon beginning with the reality of ordinary experience, Merleau-Ponty and Dewey find what we might call an holistic aestheticism in which all the elements of experience come together to produce the totality of effect, pregnant with meaning and growth. Their return to experience provides a context for a dialogue with the Zen tradition which has always been radically and explicitly empirical.
