Merleau-Ponty's Lemon

Phenomenological philosopher, Maurice Merleau-Ponty uses many physical examples in his writing. In The World of Perception, 1948, he uses a lemon to exemplify gestalt theory. He speaks of how we understand the lemon in a sensory way but neglects to discuss its sound. In order to correct this oversight, I attempt to record the sound of a lemon.
