The Phenomenological Perspective, the Thickness of Being and the Flesh of the World 30 January 2013, 16.00-18.00Location: Doelenzaal, Universiteitsbibliotheek van Amsterdam, Singel 421-7 Abstract: What can we learn from the phenomenological approach? What does it mean when phenomenology speaks of the constitution of the world? In this paper, I will discuss the manner in which phenomenology-especially in the work of Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty-understands the horizon of the world as made up from the interwoven perspectives of co-operating subjects. I shall in particular focus on what Merleau-Ponty means in The Visible and the Invisible by the 'thickness of being for me' (l'épaisseur de son être pour moi) which is on his account made up of the intersecting of our subjective views and deeds.
