"Understanding Phenomenology" provides a guide to one of the most important schools of thought in modern philosophy. The book traces phenomenology's historical development, beginning with its founder, Edmund Husserl and his "pure" or "transcendental" phenomenology, and continuing with the later, "existential" phenomenology of Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. The book also assesses later, critical responses to phenomenology - from Derrida to Dennett - as well as the continued significance of phenomenology for philosophy today. Written for anyone coming to phenomenology for the first time, the book guides the reader through the often bewildering array of technical concepts and jargon associated with phenomenology and provides clear explanations and helpful examples to encourage and enhance engagement with the primary texts.

In this important new book, leading Heidegger scholar William NcNeill provides a concise and systematic appraisal of the fate of phenomenology in Heidegger. He shows how the issue of "letting be" is already central and prominent in Heidegger's early phenomenology and examines Heidegger's phenomenological approach in relation to art and poetry.--Rebecca A.

What happens when something happens? In Thinking the Event, senior continental philosophy scholar François Raffoul undertakes a philosophical inquiry into what constitutes an event as event, its very eventfulness: not what happens or why it happens, but that it happens, and what "happening" means. If, as Leibniz posited, it is true that nothing happens without a reason, does this principle of reason have a reason? For Raffoul, the event always breaks the demands of rational thought. Bringing together philosophical insights from Heidegger, Derrida, Nancy, and Marion, Raffoul shows how the event, in its disruptive unpredictability, always exceeds causality, subjectivity, and reason. It is that "pure event," each time happening outside or without reason, which remains to be thought, and which is the focus of this work. In the final movement of the book, Raffoul takes on questions about the inappropriability of the event and the implications this carries for ethical and political considerations when thinking the event. In the wake of the exhaustion of traditional metaphysics, the notion of the event comes to the fore in an unprecedented way, with key implications for philosophy, ontology, ethics, and theories of selfhood.

This book approaches the topic of intercultural understanding in philosophy from a phenomenological perspective.
Author: Kwok-Ying Lau
This book approaches the topic of intercultural understanding in philosophy from a phenomenological perspective. It provides a bridge between Western and Eastern philosophy through in-depth discussion of concepts and doctrines of phenomenology and ancient and contemporary Chinese philosophy. Phenomenological readings of Daoist and Buddhist philosophies are provided: the reader will find a study of theoretical and methodological issues and innovative readings of traditional Chinese and Indian philosophies from the phenomenological perspective. The author uses a descriptive rigor to avoid cultural prejudices and provides a non-Eurocentric conception and practice of philosophy. Through this East-West comparative study, a compelling criticism of a Eurocentric conception of philosophy emerges. New concepts and methods in intercultural philosophy are proposed through these chapters. Researchers, teachers, post-graduates and students of philosophy will all find this work intriguing, and those with an interest in non-Western philosophy or phenomenology will find it particularly engaging.

This book is both a theoretical justification of a phenomenological and human scientific approach to psychological research and a presentation of findings in the areas of cognitive, clinical, and social psychology.The book is important because it is the most sustained statement to date about a phenomenological approach to psychological research along with original findings to compare with mainstream psychology in crucial areas of psychology: cognitive, clinical, and social psychology.Phenomenology and Psychological Research is further clarification of the phenomenological approach to psychological research along with examples of application in four different content areas: learning and thinking (both examples of alternative approaches to cognitive processes), self-deception (clinical psychology), and criminal victimization (social psychology). As such, it gives the reader who is merely curious about the possibilities of phenomenological approaches a good opportunity to evaluate its fruitfulness, whereas those who are already sympathetic to the approach will find a greater articulation of the theory behind the procedures. Lastly, the reader will find in this study an example of a descriptive and qualitative approach to psychological research that claims to meet both phenomenological and human scientific criteria. It is one of the first books to make such a claim about psychological research.

Transcendence and Phenomenology presents a definitive collection of essays discussing the much debated âe~turn to theologyâe(tm) in philosophy, most evident in phenomenology. Arguably the most pressing debate at the interface of philosophy and theology, this collection of essays makes a significant intervention in the on-going argument, gathering together some of the finest phenomenologists writing today. It also presents major criticisms of phenomenology in relation to theology, especially from John Milbank.

The aim of this book is to establish that Merleau Ponty's objections to classical theories of perception, as represented by Descartes and Berkely, are valid and to lend further support to these objections by providing an analysis of the theories themselves using Merleau Ponty's objections as a framework. In so far as the book focuses on Merleau Ponty, it does so by extracting from his phenomenological critique, a series of arguments which, it is contested, succeed in casting serious doubt on the soundness of classical theories of perception. The book is primarily intended to introduce analytic philosophers to phenomenology as an analytical and critical tool in the understanding of perception. The main conclusion of the book is that classical theories of perception cannot account for the phenomenon of perception.

This work studies a topical issue; the feeling of meaninglessness in the lives of many people. It contends that traditional cultural values (mostly religious in character) gave meaning to human life. The traditional answers, however, have been eroded by secularism. Although commitment to a cause or to a person can ensure meaningfulness, in normal circumstances, it proves to be inadequate in ultimate situations such as unavoidable suffering. Hence, the writer argues that secular humanism cannot offer the profound metaphysical foundation which underlies Frankl's concept of man. Neither can secular humanism be the basis of the unconditional meaning of human life. Ultimate meaning involves an affirmation of God. This critical and expository study brings out the connection between philosophy, psychology and religion and points out that within that context Viktor Frankl is still an important figure.
