Importance of Merleau-Ponty's Work. Maurice Merleau-Ponty was born in at Rocheford-sur-Mer, France. After finishing his studies he became instructor in philosophy at a secondary school in Saint Quentin, then professor at the University of Lyons, transferring to the Sorbonne later on, before he finally accepted an appointment to teach philosophy at the Collège de France.

Toadvine begins by setting out an ontology of nature proposed in Merleau-Ponty’s first book, The Structure of Behavior.
