The Attempt To Pursue Philosophy In The Name Of Phenomenology Is One Of The Most Significant And Important Developments In Twentieth Century Thought In This Bold And Innovative Book, Simon Glendinning Introduces Some Of Its Major Figures, And Demonstrates That Its Ongoing Strength And Coherence Is To Be Explained Less By What Maurice Merleau Ponty Called The Unity Of Its Manner Of Thinking And By What He Called Its Unfinished Nature.Beginning With A Discussion Of The Nature Of Phenomenology, Glendinning Explores The Changing Landscape Of Phenomenology In Key Texts By Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau Ponty, Levinas And Derrida Focusing On The Different Ways In Which Each Philosopher Has Responded To And Transformed The Legacy Of Phenomenology, Glendinning Shows That The Richness Of This Legacy Lies Not In The Formation Of A Distinctive Movement Or School But In A Remarkable Capacity To Make Fertile Philosophical Breakthroughs Important Topics Such As The Nature Of Phenomenological Arguments, The Critique Of Realism And Idealism, Ontology, Existentialism, Perception, Ethics And The Other Are Also Closely Examined Through A Re Evaluation Of The Development Of Phenomenology Glendinning Traces The Ruptures And Dislocations Of Philosophy That, In An Age Dominated By Science, Strive Constantly To Renew Our Understanding Of Ourselves And Our Place In The World.Clearly And Engagingly Written, In The Name Of Phenomenology Is Essential Reading For Students Of Phenomenology And Contemporary Philosophy.
