Aboutness has been studied from any number of angles. Brentano made it the defining feature of the mental. Phenomenologists try to pin down the aboutness-features of particular mental states.

The title "Advancing Phenomenology" is purposely ambiguous. On the one hand, these essays document the progress that phenomenology as an ongoing and vibrant movement has made in the period of about a century since its inception.

This book reverses the fundamental tenet of phenomenology-that all consciousness is intentional (that is, directed toward an object).

The project of naturalizing human consciousness/experience has made great technical strides (e.g., in mapping areas of brain activity), but has been hampered in many cases by its uncritical reliance on a dualistic ?Cartesian? paradigm (though as some of the authors in the collection point out, assumptions drawn from Plato and from Kant also play a... more...

This volume explores the importance of affectivity for ethics by drawing fruitfully from two different traditions that have previously tended to be kept at a maximum distance from each other: Kant research and the tradition of phenomenology. The narrower aim is to reconcile these two areas of research; the broader aim is to advance systematic... more...

An intense genealogical reconstruction of Camus's political thinking challenging the philosophical import of his writings as providing an alternative, aesthetic understanding of politics, political action and freedom outside and against the nihilistic categories of modern political philosophy and the contemporary politics of contempt and terrorisms more...

This collection, with contributions from leading philosophers, places analytic philosophy in a broader context comparing it with the methodology of its most important rival tradition in twentieth-century philosophy--phenomenology, whose development parallels the development of analytic philosophy in many ways. The Analytic Turn will be of great... more...

Die philosophische Entdeckung der Anderen stellt die Geburtsstunde der modernen Sozialphilosophie dar. Wie wir gesellschaftliches Miteinander verstehen, hängt davon ab, wie wir die Anderen sehen. Ob wir Anderen als Spiegelbilder unserer selbst, als Vertreter einer allgemein menschlichen Vernunft oder als unzugängliche Gegenüber begegnen, entscheidet... more...
