The aim of the present paper is to investigate the manner in which Merleau-Ponty’s reflexion interacts with his interest in children psychology. Through interpretation of certain passages of Merleau-Ponty’s course on children psychology and of the article entitled „Child and His Relations to Others“, we draw certain hypotheses which might allow us to cast some light on various passages from Merleau-Ponty’s late philosophical works, namely The Visible and The Invisible. One of the fundamental starting points of The Visible and The Invisible seems to be a lack of distinction between structural and genetic perspective. We attempt to explain the status and possibility of this indistinction on the kibasis of Merleau-Ponty’s criticism of Piaget’s psychology and his specific interpretation of the „mirror stage“ both in its Wallonian and Lacanian version. Especially the Lacanian understanding of this phenomenon allows a perspective in which the genetic and structural perspective do not represent two incompatible registers – Merleau-Ponty’s notion of „ontological narcism“, developed in The Visible and The Invisible, is in many respects precisely a reinterpretation of this specific conception.
