Overview

Phenomenology in a Pluralistic Context by William L. McBride

Offers various views on phenomenology and existentialism.

Phenomenology in a Pluralistic Context contains papers selected from three years of meetings of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP). The essays are representative of the most current thinking among North American philosophers who have been influenced by the phenomenological movement. A majority of the selections reveals a considerable mutual influence between phenomenology and other philosophical currents. Special emphasis is given to issues in social and political theory; the philosophy of medicine, of art, of language, and of religion; phenomenology’s relationship to Kantianism and to Marxism; and the figures of Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and Heidegger.
