Chouraqui seeks to establish an intrinsic and systematic link between the works of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) and French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908-61). He considers Nietzsche on self-differentiation and genealogy, the incorporation of truth and the symbiosis of truth and life, the self-becoming of the world and the incompleteness of being, the origin of truth, existential reductions and the object of truth, and Merleau-Ponty's soft ontology of truth as falsification.
