Summary

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.

"The panoply of selected contributions reflects the changing scene and ongoing discussions in American and European phenomenology and existentialism. Discernible throughout are dialogues and disputes with representatives of structuralism, post-structuralism, critical theory, analytical philosophy, Marxism, and process philosophy. This itself stands as a testimony to the cosmopolitan thrust of original phenomenological and existential reflection and its resistance to philosophical closures." -- from the Introduction

William L. McBride and Calvin O. Schrag are Professors of Philosophy, Purdue University.
