Gadamer, Hans-Georg | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Risser wants to go beyond these well documented positions to tie hermeneutics back to the more general project of philosophy. He does that by c Discouraged by an argument that becomes increasingly elliptic I had to put this book aside, unfinished. I found the first chapter rather promising.
Risser characterizes this as a process of convalescence.
This leads to an intriguing discussion that echoes strongly with themes in contemporary mental health care. In the second chapter we get in the thick of things. This discussion is hard going. But what really sapped my energy is the shapelessness of an argument that seems to continuously double back on itself with quasi-tautological assertions. But by then my patience had flagged and I decided to take my leave from The Life of Understanding.

Studies In Continental Thought Series
Locke and Rachel McCann. Phenomenology has played a decisive role in the emergence of the discourse of place, and the contribution of Merleau-Ponty to architectural theory and practice is well established.
This collection of essays by 12 eminent scholars is the first devoted specifically to developing his contribution to our understanding of place and architecture. It brings his views on the self and ontology into contemporary focus, arguing that the self is not a self-contained or self-determining identity. From Mastery to Mystery is an original and provocative contribution to the burgeoningfield of ecophenomenology.
Edmund Husserl, founder of the phenomenological movement, is usually read as an idealist in his metaphysics and an instrumentalist in his philosophy of science. In The Madness of Vision , Buci-Glucksmann asserts the important of embodied vision in nine studies of paintings, sculptures, and images.
She integrates the work of Merleau-Ponty with Lacanian psychoanalysis, Renaissance studies in optics, and twentieth-century mathematics to make the case for the pervasive influence of the baroque. Dillon — was widely regarded as a world-leading Merleau-Ponty scholar.
Dillon followed that book with two others: Semiological Reductionism , a critique of earlys linguistic reductionism, and Beyond Romance , a richly developed theory of love. In The Tenets of Cognitive Existentialism , Dimitri Ginev draws on developments in hermeneutic phenomenology and other programs in hermeneutic philosophy to inform an interpretative approach to scientific practices.
At stake is the question of whether it is possible to integrate forms of reflection upon the ontological difference in the cognitive structure of scientific research.
From the frozen landscapes of the Antarctic to the haunted houses of childhood, the memory of places we experience is fundamental to a sense of self. Drawing on influences as diverse as Merleau-Ponty, Freud, and J. Ballard, The Memory of Place charts the memorial landscape that is written into the body and its experience of the world. Transversality is the keyword that permeates the spirit of these thirteen essays spanning almost half a century, from to The essays are exploratory and experimental in nature and are meant to be a transversal linkage between phenomenology and East Asian philosophy.
Transversality is the concept that dispels all ethnocentrisms, including Eurocentrism. Barber is the first to bring phenomenology to bear not just on the perspectives of McDowell or Brandom alone, but on their intersection.
