Towards a phenomenological theory of violence: Reflections following Merleau-ponty and Schutz [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Human Studies 30 (3):233 - 253 (2007)
|Abstract||This paper lays the groundwork for developing a thorough-going phenomenological description of different phenomena of violence such as physical, psychic and structural violence. The overall aim is to provide subject-centered approaches to violence within the social sciences and the humanities with an integrative theoretical framework. To do so, I will draw primarily on the phenomenological accounts of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Alfred Schutz, and thereby present guiding clues for a phenomenologically grounded theory of violence.|
