Genetic Phenomenology

Phenomenology Research Summer School 2018

Interdisciplinary Research Summer Schools

Phenomenology Research Summer School 2018

The first International  Research Summer School in Genetic Phenomenology took place in Warsaw from September 24th to 28th 2018 at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology / Graduate School for Social Research, Polish Academy of Sciences. This was the first of a series of Research Summer Schools to be held annually.

The  Research Summer School aimed at a concentrated hermeneutical work focusing on the phenomenological research presented in Edmund Husserl’s C-manuscripts 1929–1934 (edited by Dieter Lohmar as volume VIII of Husserliana-Materialien), dedicated to questions of temporality, corporeality and personhood from the standpoint of genetic phenomenology. The genetic account of phenomenology builds the new focus of Husserl- research and will also be the centre of upcoming initiatives during the next academic years.

Following Edmund Husserl’s phenomenological investigations, the Research Summer School aimed at developing new instruments for human sciences and interdisciplinary research.

International experts  discussed thematic issues on the basis of textual analysis in lectures and seminars. In the afternoon, international scholars and advanced PhD students  continued the discussion with selected textual passages and their related research topics.

The program included a Master Class on the book Force – pulsion – désir: une autre philosophie de la psychanalyse. Problèmes & Controverses, 2013 Paris, held by the author, Rudolf Bernet.

Language: English / German

Total Class Time: 30h

Academic Direction: Prof. Jagna Brudzińska
