    Literature and the Expressions of Being in Merleau-Ponty’s Unpublished Course Notes.Lovisa Andén - 2019 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (3):208-219.
    ABSTRACTIn this article I examine Merleau-Ponty’s understanding of the relation between literature, being and perception. I focus especially on two of Merleau-Ponty’s courses at Collège de France: the first course, Le monde sensible et le monde de l’expression, and the unpublished course Sur le problème de la parole. In the former Merleau-Ponty presents a new understanding of perception, according to which being is expressed in perception through the style of movement of the perceived phenomenon. In the latter he advances a (...)

    Perceptual Experience in Kant and Merleau-Ponty.Peter Antich - 2019 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (3):220-233.
    I argue that the descriptions of perceptual experience offered by Kant and Merleau-Ponty are, contrary to what many commentators suppose, largely compatible. This is because the two are simply referring to different things when they talk about experience: Kant to empirical cognition and Merleau-Ponty to perception. Consequently, while Merleau-Ponty correctly denies that Kant accurately describes the conditions for the possibility of perception, Kant nevertheless provides a plausible account of the conditions of empirical judgment. Further, the two approach experience with different (...)

    Sign and Hyle: Re-Reading Derrida’s Critique of Husserl Through the Bernau Manuscripts.Sai Hang Kwok - 2019 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (3):234-248.
    ABSTRACTDerrida’s philosophy starts with a law stated in The Problem of Genesis in Husserl’s Philosophy: “No analysis could present, make present in its phenomenon or reduce to the point-like nature of the element, instantaneous and identical to itself.” This “law” is derived from a critique of Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology, which, according to Derrida, demonstrates the impossibility of reducing phenomena to a single origin. In this paper, I argue that Derrida’s critique is based on an omission of the Bernau Manuscripts, within (...)

    On the Petite Phrase of Proust and the Experience of Empathy: Exploring the Rhythmical Structure of Music.Jessica Wiskus - 2019 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (3):264-277.
    ABSTRACTHow does music have the power to speak to us as if it were a living being, endowed with subjectivity? Do we empathize with music? Ordinarily we consider our perception of subjects as subjects, through empathy, to pertain to flesh-and-blood persons; this article asks how it is possible for us to empathize with the ordered movement of aural sensations in time. Drawing upon Edith Stein’s On the Problem of Empathy together with Edmund Husserl’s work on Querintentionalität and Längsintentionalität in Husserliana (...)

    Distant Things: A Closer Look.Kristjan Laasik - 2019 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (Published Online):249-263.
    In a discussion of the constitutive role of colour in our visual perceptual experiences, Wilhelm Schapp centrally argues that we cannot visually perceive certain distant things, like a house seen far down in the valley. My main contention is that, in cases relevantly similar to Schapp’s, we do perceptually experience distant things, viz., as drastically “decayed” things, which are part of distant scenes. In doing so, we adopt towards them a kind of conservative “attitude.” The ideas of decay and scenicness (...)
