Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For students coming to Phenomenology for the first time, and for philosophers wanting an overview of the contemporary revival of Phenomenology, there's no better book than this one. This book is sure to become the standard introduction to Phenomenology for years to come." - Evan Thompson, University of Toronto, Canada

"What makes this book one of the best of its kind is its focus on current practice rather than on philosophical tradition. As a result, the reader gets a concise introduction that makes do without much technical jargon and instead clearly argues for a particular way of doing phenomenology. This is both elegantly simple and excitingly provocative." - Julia Jansen, University College Cork, Ireland

'This is an outstanding introduction to phenomenology, that provides a careful and lucid orientation to classic phenomenological concepts and issues, in their historical and scholarly context, and an education into doing phenomenology, through engagement with recent discussions and results in philosophy and science. It is an excellent resource for philosophers and scientists new to phenomenology, and for those looking for a state of the art synthesis of the discipline and its possibilities.' David Morris, Concordia University, Canada
