Sample text

And Joey was there. He shouldn’t. He shouldn’t have. You were the last to leave. Lost… I got lost. Never mind. They were pleased to see you. Please yourself. Context: A is a care worker and B a disturbed client. Context: A and B are characters in a surrealist play. Context: A is a computer programmer programming a computer (B) to take part in a conversation. Context: A and B are back to back, speaking into separate pay phones. The debate between Heidegger and Husserl revolves essentially around whether we should confine our description to consciously reported experience and then try to refine this description by looking at variations within the experience: what I have termed ‘vertical deconstruction’ of the client’s construal of the problem.

A conversation and language, then, can take on several distinct meanings depending on its context. Why phenomenology? 27 A third aspect, related to the second, is that a shadow of meaning precedes observation and is cast by my approach to – that is, my way of – seeking meaning. We are not saying my actions entirely construct or determine meaning, simply that they define the boundaries of meaning. My active project also determines the sufficiency of meaning for any phenomenon. In the case of the potato man, in the context of my project of walking to work not knowing anything about him was sufficient knowledge to continue my actions.

These background factors form a rich context that by their presence or absence may guarantee the nature of an experience. 3. For Heidegger existence in the here and now has precedence over any universal essence, and he described his challenge to Husserl as his famous ‘turn’. This turn, as a historical event, ranks alongside Marx’s turning Hegel on his head in his application of dialectics to materialism instead of idealism. In Heidegger’s case the turn was the realization that he could no longer conceive of being in terms of human understanding but had to conceive of human understanding in terms of being.
