dc.description.abstract Merleau-Ponty is interested in the artist at work, too busy in his lively and creative experiencing and communicating with the world to notice the birth of his style. In this way, style designates the tacit and invisible gift. With the help of Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty indirectly speaks of the essence of truth and the ever-concealed actual world revealing the gift of beauty, always wrapped in style. Both of these philosophers work within a Hegelian legacy of dialectical art, yet they stretch beauty's expression to its tacit phenomenological limits. It is a body ever expressing and moving with beautiful `style' that morality and ethics encounter their impotence and dismissal of corporeality. I move towards Nietzsche as a place for encountering corporeality, wherein Agnus Heller accompanies this paper to navigate Nietzsche's turbulent philosophy. In more subtle ways, Edward S. Casey, Eduardo Mendieta and Marcia Morgan offer more tangible glimpses of corporeality within this thesis. With these diverse thinkers, I complicate Hegel's ideal beauty with Merleau-Ponty's reappropriated style, which traverses diverse thinkers and artists in an endless tracing of a beauty somewhere in the mix. en_US
