PHIL 7157 — Phenomenology
Thursdays, 2:30 – 4:30
John Drummond
This course will take a problems-approach to phenomenology. We shall read discussions of
some major issues in phenomenology as found in authors from Husserl to the present. We shall
also, when appropriate and time-permitting, discuss non-phenomenological authors who address
the same issues. The issues to be discussed are identified below. The authors mentioned for
each issue will definitely be read; additional authors, especially contemporary ones, might yet be
1. Phenomenological method (Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Crowell)
2. Intentionality (Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Gurwitsch, Føllesdal,
Smith and McIntyre, Drummond, Searle, Crane)
3. Time-consciousness, temporality, and subjectivity (Brentano, Meinong, Husserl, Heidegger,
Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Brough, Zahavi, Drummond)
4. Intersubjectivity (Husserl, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Zahavi)
5. Special cases of intentionality:
a. Judgment (Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger)
b. Feelings, emotions and moods (Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Goldie, Roberts)
c. Volition (Husserl, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Ricoeur)
