The 20th-century German mathematician-turned-philosopher Edmund Husserl was the principal founder of the philosophical school and method of Phenomenology. His works are still actively studied today and he is considered one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. One way of approaching the vast phenomenon that is phenomenology (pun intended), is to explore the philosophical project of its founder. The following video, although clearly several years old, offers a lively and instructive introduction lecture into Husserl’s phenomenology and, more broadly, addresses the core difference in underlying motivations of the Continental and Anglo-American / Analytic philosophers. Enjoy!
Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, I hope to share an insightful and thought-provoking article or video every weekend. I feel it is essential to care for our physical and mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
