Abstract

The aim of the paper is to investigate the text of Maurice Merleau-Ponty's conference The film and the new psychology, in order to deepen his choice of the seventh art as a paradigm for an idea of phenomenology based on the principle that every consciousness is, to a certain degree, perceptual consciousness. This paper aims to show how the reflection of the French philosopher gives cinema the status of a paradigm of the Gestalt phenomenon, highlighting its ability to restore visibility to expression and perception, through the – technical and artistic – reconstruction of the structure of behavior in its exteriority.
