Abstract / Rezension

Phenomenology and Human Experience is a volume of eleven essays generated from part of the works presented at "Border-Crossing: The 4th International Conference of P.E.A.CE (Phenomenology for East-Asian CirclE)" held in December 2010 at the National Sun Yatsen University, Taiwan. The themes treated include: interconnection between ethical space and space of truth, freedom in the biotechnologically enhanced world, wildnature facing the extension of urbanization, landscape as a way of thinking and living, Husserl's meditation on death, the subtle difference between Heidegger's and Gadamer's hermeneutics, Merleau-Ponty's reversibility thesis revisited, Patočka's phenomenology of body and subjective movement, and Edith Stein's phenomenology of education. They are original contributions or renewed reflections from East-Asian phenomenologists, joined by their Western colleagues, on the most divergent aspects of human experience. This is another concrete proof that more than a century since its emergence on German soil, phenomenology has spread across linguistic and geographical borders to become one of the most vibrant global philosophical movements.

The editors: Chung-Chi Yu is Professor at the Institute of Philosophy, National Sun Yatsen University of Taiwan, and currently Director of the Institute. - Kwokying Lau is both Professor at the Department of Philosophy and Director of the Edwin Cheng Foundation Asian Centre for Phenomenology at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
