Tuesday Morning with Foucault and Merleau-Ponty

"For Nietzsche, Bataille, Blanchot...experience is trying to reach a certain point in life that is as close as possible to the unlivable, to that which can't be lived through. What is required is a maximum intensity and the maximum impossibility at the same time." Michel Foucault from Power p.241

"Even if I become absorbed in the experience of my body and the solitude of sensations, I do not succeed in abolishing all references of my life to the world." M. Merleau-Ponty from Phenomenology of Perception, p. 165
