Further information:

Active participation in seminars, typically 3 ECTS, with extra reading 5 ECTS.

The aim of this mini-course will be to introduce participants to some of the basic questions and issues in the phenomenology of the body and embodied experience.  We will spend the first day exploring aspects of Husserl’s pioneering work on the body in the second volume of Ideas.  The second day will be devoted to an examination of Merleau-Ponty’s account of the body in the first part of Phenomenology of Perception.  Although, as we will see, Merleau-Ponty inherits a great deal from Husserl, there are also significant criticisms and departures.  Emphasis will be given to the latter in our examination.

For 3 credits

Lectures + readings + 3 page essay on one of the topics
