    Ontologically Interactive Painting: On Susan Rothenberg’s Three Heads.Caleb Faul - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (2):184-197.
    In this article, I argue that paintings are transformations of the perceptual world, transformations that the world itself elicits but does not determine, thus undercutting the subjective-objective divide in art. First, I describe Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s notion of institution, according to which sense develops only by changing, that is, by being taken up and coherently deformed. Next, I use this notion to argue that paintings develop the perceptual sense of the world by coherently deforming it. In other words, paintings are transformations (...)

    Brentano and Husserl on Hume’s Moral Philosophy.Hynek Janoušek - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (2):133-148.
    The article analyses the reception of Hume’s moral philosophy in the lectures and manuscripts of Edmund Husserl and in the published lectures of Franz Brentano, on which Husserl originally based his views. I first present the reasons that led Brentano to appreciate Hume’s sentimentalist background in moral philosophy and to criticize Hume’s relativism. I then show how Husserl, following the critique of psychologism in his Logical Investigations, builds on this starting point and attempts to show a possible contradictory nature of (...)

    Mimetic Phantasia in Action: Marc Richir’s Phenomenology of Intersubjectivity.Mauro Senatore - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (2):149-166.
    In this article, I aim to cast light on the genetic analyses of the apperception of the other that the phenomenologist Marc Richir develops in his late masterwork Phénoménologie en esquisses (2000). My reading hypothesis is that these analyses consist in the original contribution that Richir makes to the standard phenomenological account of empathy from within his overall project of a non-standard revision/refoundation of the Husserlian genetic phenomenology. To test this hypothesis, I trace Richir’s reinterpretation of two texts from Husserl’s (...)

    Narrative Medicine and Empathy: A Phenomenological Perspective.Eugenia Stefanello - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (2):167-183.
    In Rita Charon's account of narrative medicine, empathy seems to be an essential element of the clinical relationship. However, empathy has not received much attention, which I believe is problematic. First, I show that not only is there no clear definition of what empathy is, but that this conceptual gap creates ambiguity about its role in the practice of narrative medicine. Second, I argue that certain passages in Charon's work seem to implicitly characterize empathy as a combination of cognitive empathy, (...)

    Resisting Bodies: Between the Politics of Vulnerability and “We-Can”.Marieke Borren - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (1):111-128.
    This article presents a critical phenomenology of embodiment in radical democratic struggles, focusing on racialized citizens inhabiting and navigating public spaces and on anti-racist protests. It contrasts the notion of the precarious body, central to critical theorists like Judith Butler, with an alternative phenomenological understanding, locating the political significance of the body in spontaneous movement (Arendt) and competence (Merleau-Ponty). Attending to either precariousness or mobile-capable bodies reveals distinct dimensions of radical democratic struggles. While precariousness addresses the unequal distribution of social-material (...)

    Civil Disobedience: A Phenomenological Approach.Steffen Herrmann - 2024 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 55 (1):61-76.
    In this paper, I discuss three objections against climate activism often voiced in the public, namely that their practices of civil disobedience are ultimately insincere, illegal, and ineffective. The main part of my paper focuses on this last point. This is because this objection points us to a deeper conceptual problem of political protest: if one of the conditions for the success of civil disobedience is that political demands must have been first voiced via democratic channels of opinion-formation, then why (...)
