Thanks for your post on Merleau-Ponty. He was also one of my favorite phenomenolgists, one who, unlike Husserl's other well-known disciples, Sartre and Heidegger, located the source of the structures of consciousness in a living human body and not in an already abstracted experience such as "being-for-itself" or Dasein. Perhaps that's the very reason he's not such a remembered figure as the others.
  Another phenomenologist who I really appreciated, the father of ethnomethodology, Alfred Schutz, also could provide a missing dimension to the discussion of the historical dimension of activity. I don't remember his precise terms at the moment but he identified three dimensions: the domain of all those who lived before anyone we know can remember, the dimension of those whom we know and those we know can remember, the dimension of all those who will live after anyone we know will live to know.
