|Title:||What is the Phenomenological Approach? Revisiting Intentional Explication||Authors:||Moran, Dermot||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10139||Date:||2018||Online since:||2019-04-24T13:47:21Z||Abstract:||In this paper I outline the main features of the phenomenological approach, focusing on the central themes of intentionality, embodiment, empathy, intersubjectivity, sociality and the life-world. I argue that phenomenology is primarily a philosophy of intentional explication that identifies the a priori, structural correlations between subjectivity and all forms of constituted objectivities apprehended in their horizonal contexts. Intentional description reveals the structurally necessary, meaning informing interactions between embodied subjectivity (already caught in the nexus of intersubjectivity) in the context of embeddedness in the temporal, historical, and cultural life-world. I shall defend phenomenology as a holistic approach that rightfully defends the role of subjectivity in the constitution of objectivity and recognizes the inherent limitations of all forms of naturalism, objectivism and scientism.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Journal:||Phenomenology and Mind||Volume:||15||Start page:||72||End page:||90||Copyright (published version):||2018 the Authors||Keywords:||Phenomenology; Description; Intuition; Intentionality; Life-world; Correlation||DOI:||10.13128/Phe_Mi-24973||Other versions:||http://www.fupress.net/index.php/pam/article/view/24973||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
