Module Aims

This course will offer a historical introduction to phenomenology, approached through the work of some of the early phenomenological thinkers: Scheler, Stein and Heidegger, in dialogue with one another and with Edmund Husserl, the founder of the movement. It will deal with the impact of the phenomenological movement on twentieth-century philosophy and will also treat of the application of phenomenological thinking to issues such as the person, ethics, value and emotion.
