Givenness & Hermeneutics, Hardback Book


The question of the given is central to philosophy; phenomenology uses the method of reduction to find the given.

This lecture asks whether there is anything that resists reduction, whether there is something irreducible.

The author concludes that the phenomenology of givenness addresses the gap between what gives itself and what shows itself, so that the self of the phenomenon emerges only by the exercise of a properly phenomenological hermeneutics.
