This book presents the major philosophical doctrines of phenomenology in a clear, lively style with an abundance of examples. The book examines such phenomena as perception, pictures, imagination, memory, language, and reference, and shows how human thinking arises from experience. It also studies personal identity as established through time and discusses the nature of philosophy. In addition to providing a new interpretation of the correspondence theory of truth, the author also explains how phenomenology differs from both modern and postmodern forms of thinking.

About the Author:

Robert Sokolowski is the Elizabeth Breckenridge Caldwell Professor of Philosophy at The Catholic University of America. Twice awarded research fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, he has also served as a consultant at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and gave the 26th J. Robert Oppenheimer Lecture there in 1996. He has also served as visiting professor at the Graduate Faculty of the New School University; the University of Texas, Austin; Villanova; and Yale University. Dr Sokolowski is the author of many books, including Introduction to Phenomenology, Moral Action, The God of Faith and Reason, Presence and Absence, and Husserlian Meditations.

Review:

"This thoughtful and beautifully crafted book introduces the reader to the fundamental themes of phenomenology...This is the introduction to phenomenology that many of us have been waiting for. It offers rich and illuminating insights both for the first-time reader and for the long-term scholar. It also offers many original and evocative reflections on the nature and role of philosophy in our time." Richard Cobb-Stevens, Boston College, The Thomist

"Both in tone and content it is an eminently successful introduction to phenomenology. It offers rich and illuminating insights both for the first-time reader and for the long-term scholar. This is the introduction to phenomenology that many of us have been waiting for." Richard Cobb-Stevens, Boston College

"...this is an excellent introduction." Choice

"...the book would make an excellent text for an undergraduate course. Yet because it also offers a fresh and stimulating interpretation of phenomenology and an intriguing view of its importance for contemporary intellectual life it should be of much broader interest as well." Review of Metaphysics

"...a straightforward introductory presentation of philosophical phenomenology from a basically Husserlian perspective with a minimum of jargon and written in an American idiom." Journal of Phenomenological Psychology

"Sokolowshi's introduction is excellent in many ways. He writes with admirable lucidity about complex and subtle issues, including even such braintwisters as the temporality of consciousness, the phenomenology of the self, and noetic-noematic correlations...His treatment of phenomenology is quite comprehensive...appears to be a very valuable pedagogical resource, at least for those who agree with its basic view of phenomenology." Husserl Studies 2002

"Robert Sokolowski has established himself as one of our leading contemporary philosophers...In this book, Sokolowski has given us a concise, lucid, and cogently argued introduction to phenomenology, which displays many of its contributions to our understanding of human thought, action, and speech, and which leaves little doubt about the integrity and efficacy of the philosophical enterprise...Sokolowski's introduction to phenomenology is now indespensable, and it is a safe prediction that it will be the standard text on this subject for many years." Teaching Philosophy
