Comments Introduction to Phenomenology

  • Nathan "N.R." Gaddis

    This is an excellent introduction to phenomenological thought through an explication of its major proponents from Husserl's predecessor Brentano down to Levinas and Derrida. In addition to the companion volume The Phenomenology Reader I'd like to recommend also Sokolowski's Introduction to Phenomenology which is a methodological introduction to phenomenology and is quite accessible.

    looking way back, decided to up the rating: after all, this inspired me to read an entire canon, a sort I still enjoy, of heidegger, husserl, sartre, merleau-ponty, de beauvoir and has set me up to investigate other sorts, such as bergson, deleuze, such as the indian philosophers i read now. hard to remember a time before reading this. great intro, can read concurrently with moran's reader of phenomenology


  • LunaBel

    I have never read anything focused in Phenomenology. This is the first book I tried. Though This book encloses rich material, but I dont seem to be able to fully understand what it is really discussing. It is true that I blame myself and not the author since I know barely anything about Phenomenology, so this book is more adapted to someone who was already introduced to it. I've also noticed that it's based more on summarising ideas rather than analysing them. For instance, the relation of Pheno [...]

    Great question. Thanks for asking. I'm in the process of reading it, so I can't give a definitive answer at the moment. So far I've learned that someone can restate philosophical ideas a lot better than I did and it can be helpful. My hope is that after reading this book I will not have to read any of the books mentioned in it. I propose stretching the word introduction out to mean hung out at several parties and then decided that Phenomenology runs with too many Continentalists. But like I said [...]


  • Ryan

    This is a great introduction into one of the more difficult philosophical traditions to understand. Moran takes the reader through the history, starting with proto-phenomenology in Brentano, through to Derrida. Moran explains the difficult and dense subject matters with amazing lucidity, and does not get bogged down with extensive terminology. Would like to see a second volume exploring French phenomenology after Derrida, particularly the theological turn. But this was a fantastic one volume ove [...]


  • Yzobelle

    Very substantial introduction to phenomenology. Highly academically written -- something that has to be read while in a thinking mode. Definitely not a bed book. I appreciate so much it being loaded with information about the history of phenomenology dating back from the time of Husserl down to Monteau-Ponty. It is a big help for those who want to use this as a research design because phenomenology as design must first be understood as a philosophy.


  • A.J. Jr.

    The best work on the subject of its kind. Required reading.


  • Jack Louis

    In my opinion, this volume is the best single introduction to phenomenology, surpassing even the classic text of Robert Sokolowski. Most helpfully, Moran understands the relationship between phenomenology and hermeneutics to be symbiotic and inevitably interdependent. This perspective allows him to emphasize the major philosophical insights of various thinkers rather than merely reducing phenomenology to a quasi-analytic epistemology (a danger, which in my view, far too many contemporary scholar [...]


  • Nathan

    A very helpful and thorough introduction to the broad method known as phenomenology. What the reader will find out is that phenomenology is not a singular discipline with a concrete and rigid methodology. Each phenomenological thinker has their own goal, their own end, their own notions of cognition and experience and how we apprehend the world, and their own unique way of doing things. This book takes us through the path and evolution of phenomenology and its various forms. It begins with Breta [...]


  • Nicolaus Stengl

    Read: Heidegger, Sartre, and DerridaSkimmed: Gadamer and ArendtI thought the Heidegger section was an excellent introduction to Heidegger's Being and Time. Moran gives much needed attention to Heidegger's influences and an overview of his philosophical endeavor of understanding Being, Dasein, and Time. What I found most helpful with this introduction of Heidegger was seeing the relationship of all three themes coming together in Heidegger's work. By introducing me to the philosophy of Being and [...]


  • David Markwell

    This is a well structured and consicse introduction to the history of Phenomenology. The book looks at all the major figures from Brentanno to Derrida giving a history of the thinker and an overview of their thought as well as the influences the thinker has had in contemporary philosophy. A must for anyone looking to learn more about the Phenomenological tradition.


  • Tomaj Javidtash

    One of the best introductions to phenomenology.


  • Mahdi

    3.5


  • Markku

    Good introduction to the topic despite the fact that sections of different chapters are sometimes a bit erratic.


  • David

    This, along with the reader, will be long-term reading projects. I hope to tackle a section a week, meaning that I probably won't finish them until the end of the summer.


  • Luke Echo

    Good overview of the field of Phenomenology. I think I will have to read Heidegger's Being and Time now though
