Perceiving the Other is a Norwegian/German collaboration lead by Trygve Wyller and Hans-Günter Heimbrock. Case examples introduce a new way of approaching ethics. It points out that it is possible to show phenomenological ethics in practise. The lived experience (praxis) is as important as the professional experience. The research on the field is the dynamics between these two experiences, where the professional experience is taken from the general life experience.Perceiving the Other has three sections:1. Introduction emphasizing the ethical paradigm shift, and presenting the terms relationality, connectedness etc. The introduction clarifies past and ongoing research, and discusses how to develop research with the “new” perspectives – connectedness, phenomenology etc.2. Section two consists of five cases from Norwegian and German doctoral dissertations and thesis within professional ethics and theology. It gives five thematic sections presenting phenomenona as language, space, gender and body.3. Section three is the conclusion, introducing phronetic ethics that is driven from the relational (as source of ethics) and connectedness. The conclusion also discusses the consequences and implications of introducing these perspectives within the fields of theology, professional ethics and work among the marginalized.
