Download E-books The Sense of Things: Toward a Phenomenological Realism (Analecta Husserliana, Volume 118) PDF
By Angela Ales Bello
This publication proposes a brand new interpretative key for studying and overcoming the binary of idealism and realism. It takes as its relevant factor for exploration the best way human realization unfolds, i.e., throughout the courting among the I and the world―a box of phenomenological research that can't and mustn't ever stay closed in the limits of its personal disciplinary borders. The ebook specializes in the query of realism in modern debates, eventually dismantling prejudices and automatisms that one unearths therein. It indicates that on the root of the debate among realism and idealism there frequently lie equivocations of a semantic nature and through going again to the origins of contemporary phenomenology it places into play a dialogue of the Husserlian notion of transcendental idealism. Following this direction and neutralizing the intense positions of a severe idealism and a naïve realism, the ebook proposes a “transcendental realism”: the horizon of a dynamic harmony that embraces the method of cognition and that grounds the relation, and never the subordination, of topic and item. The research of this reciprocity permits the surpassing of the bounds of the area of understanding, resulting in basic questions surrounding the final word experience of items and their starting place.
