This new introduction by Shaun Gallagher gives students and philosophers not only an excellent concise overview of the state of the field and contemporary debates, but a novel way of addressing the subject by looking at the ways in which phenomenology is useful to the disciplines it applies to. Gallagher retrieves the central insights made by the classic phenomenological philosophers (Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and others), updates some of these insights in innovative ways, and shows how they directly relate to ongoing debates in philosophy and psychology. Accounts of phenomenological methods, and the concepts of intentionality, temporality, embodiment, action, self, and our ability to understand other people are integrated into a coherent contemporary statement that shows why phenomenology is still an active and vital philosophical approach.

Each chapter begins with a discussion of the classic analyses and then goes on to show their relevance to contemporary debates in philosophy about embodied, enactive and extended approaches to our understanding of human experience. Along the way Gallagher introduces some novel interpretations that suggest how phenomenology can both inform and be informed by the terms of these debates.

Review:

"For students coming to Phenomenology for the first time, and for philosophers wanting an overview of the contemporary revival of Phenomenology, there's no better book than this one. This book is sure to become the standard introduction to Phenomenology for years to come." - Evan Thompson, University of Toronto, Canada

"What makes this book one of the best of its kind is its focus on current practice rather than on philosophical tradition. As a result, the reader gets a concise introduction that makes do without much technical jargon and instead clearly argues for a particular way of doing phenomenology. This is both elegantly simple and excitingly provocative." - Julia Jansen, University College Cork, Ireland

'This is an outstanding introduction to phenomenology, that provides a careful and lucid orientation to classic phenomenological concepts and issues, in their historical and scholarly context, and an education into doing phenomenology, through engagement with recent discussions and results in philosophy and science. It is an excellent resource for philosophers and scientists new to phenomenology, and for those looking for a state of the art synthesis of the discipline and its possibilities.' David Morris, Concordia University, Canada
