Did Maurice Merleau-Ponty reject Edmund Husserl's Reductionism? I have read Merleau-Ponty never wrote that God did not exist, but rather said we can never "know" one way or the other. Is this why he rejected some of Husserl's ideas? Was Husserl seeking a proof of God? I am not a student seeking answers for a test (although I struggled mightily with Merleau-Ponty as a graduate student in 1982), and only recently purchased the "Phenomenology of Perception" again. It is not as daunting as I remember, but Husserl and Merleau-Ponty's beliefs about God have been hard to figure out If you choose to answer my questions I thank you.
