“This is, quite simply, the most magnificent account of phenomenology ever written. Edgar brings to life, in the fullest possible terms, the genius of Merleau-Ponty—the church should be truly grateful.” — Conor Cunningham, University of Nottingham

“Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy is ... one of the most fertile sources in recent thought for reshaping the way we think about knowledge, time, and embodiment. It is also a style of thought with obvious theological resonance, a question that has long been in need of the kind of careful, insightful, and creative attention that Orion Edgar provides in this really admirable study.” — Rowan Williams, University of Cambridge

“Edgar’s analysis is both philosophically insightful and theologically rich, and this study makes a significant contribution to Merleau-Ponty.” — Sarah Coakley, University of Cambridge

Things Seen and Unseen confirms the significance of Maurice Merleau-Ponty as one of the principal philosophical voices deserving contemporary theological attention.” — Andrew Davison, University of Cambridge

“A welcome and elegant contribution to the recovery of Merleau-Ponty’s ‘incarnational’ phenomenology for theology.” — Janet Soskice, University of Cambridge
