Favorite Phenomenology Quotes

1. "Man must be an emptiness, a nothingness, which is not a pure nothingness (reines Nichts), but something that is to the extent that it annihilates Being, in order to realize itself at the expense of Being and to nihilate in being. Man is negating Action, which transforms given Being and, by transforming it, transforms itself. Man is what he is only to the extent that he becomes what he is; his true Being (Sein) is Becoming (Werden), Time, History; and he becomes, he is History only in and by Action that negates the given, the Action of Fighting and of Work — of the Work that finally produces the table on which Hegel writes his Phenomenology, and of the Fight that is finally that Battle at Jena whose sounds he hearts while writing the Phenomenology. And that is why, in answering the "What am I?" Hegel had to take account of both that table and those sounds."
Author: Alexandre Kojève
2. "All our modern "scientistic" presuppositions may tell us that mind must be entirely a mechanical function or residue of the brain's neuronal processes, but even the most basic phenomenology of consciousness discloses so vast an incommensurability between physical causation and mental events that it is probably impossible that the latter could ever be wholly reduced to the former."
Author: David Bentley Hart
3. "To begin with, we put the proposition: pure phenomenology is the science of pure consciousness."

5. "This is what is meant by the phenomenology of the science-making process: Self-observation always leads us to an existential point about the metaphysics of experience, and it is almost always a transforming moment. (p. 286)"
Author: Eugene Taylor
6. "Thus "phenomenology" means ap?fa??es?a? ta fa???µe?a -- to let that which shows itself be seen from itself in the very way in which it shows itself from itself."
Author: Martin Heidegger
7. "But enough of phenomenology; it is nothing more than the solitary, endless monologue of consciousness, a hard-core autism that no real cat would ever importune."
Author: Muriel Barbery
8. "There's a phenomenology of being sick, one that depends on temperament, personal history, and the culture which we live in."
Author: Siri Hustvedt

Today's Quote

This is that moment in the hangover in which you discover that your keys are in your hat, the cat is in the sink, and you attempted late the previous night to make stew out of a pot holder. Things are in the wrong place. Religion is in the box where science used to be. Politics is on the shelf where you thought you left science the previous afternoon. Entertainment seems to have been knocked over and spilled on everything."
Author: Charles P. Pierce
