In The Primacy of Perception Merleau-Ponty (1964) remarked, “psychology and philosophy are nourished by the same phenomena; it is only that the problems become more formalized at the philosophical level” (p. 24). Phenomenological philosophy, as much as psychology, is concerned with the study of consciousness and the life of psyche. What is the relationship between the two, for phenomenologists? I explore the interrelationship of the two through the lens of Aristotle's reflection on sofia (wisdom) and phronesis (praxis-understanding).
