27/2 – Fall 2022

Contemporary phenomenology may offer something inaccessible elsewhere to the reader who suffer from excess, including information excess. No matter what kind of question or problem is currently at stake: an interaction of static and genetic approaches in general, the type of the crossing of two different disciplines with their irreducible rigor of method, human emotional experience with regard to the formation of subjectivity, temporal experience in undertaking an action, or even gestural circle at the origin of the flesh. In each case, multifaceted and referring to various authors phenomenology contributes in such a way as to promote the core of the issues in question. Whether it comes to elucidate in what exactly consist the investigated methodological articulations, affective evaluations having a cognitive importance, ontological commitment of the phenomenon of shame, initializing an action/a project, or a curative potential of some gestures, the human experience in its irreducibility is actually and finally addressed. Let the reader answer for themselves if the insight carried out in the six presented studies may convince of the still irreplaceable role of phenomenology as the critique of experience.
