Overview

Many of the contributions to this volume are based on research originally presented at the historic first meeting in the United States of Japanese and American phenomenologists that took place at Seattle University in the Summer of 1991. In addition, other contributions have been added in order to supplement and complement the themes of the work presented at this meeting. Owing both to the vagaries of fate and the finitude of time, the publication of these essays has taken much longer than was originally intended. Nevertheless, this delay is more than offset by the inclusion in one volume of both phenomenological thematics and phenomenological authors who do not usually appear together.

Contributions to a happening of Japanese and American phenomenologists in the summer of 1991 in Seattle have been supplemented and complemented with others to make 15. The topics include phenomenology as calculus, Merleau-Ponty's vertical genesis and the Aristotelian powers of the soul, certainty as the fictitious essence of philosophy, the aporia of time-analysis- reflection across the transcendental divide, the indeterminacy of images as an approach to a phenomenology of the imagination, Heidegger's thinking through the middle-voice, the phenomenon of questioning, Augustine as phenomenologist, and permanence and flux.
