The alternative alluded to in the conference title is that between what J. L. Austin called "linguistic phenomenology" (Philosophical Papers, p. 182), broadly conceived as synonymous with "ordinary language philosophy (= OLP), and phenomenology as founded by Edmund Husserl. In this later sense, "phenomenology" is meant to include figures like Eugen Fink, Adolf Reinach or Merleau-Ponty, but also influential secessionists like Heidegger or Derrida. The former tradition is understood as including the likes of Wittgenstein, Ryle, Alan R. White or Cavell. Papers will either cut across the traditions or be basic in a way that makes them relevant for both of them. The following topics have been suggested for discussion:
(1) “S is p” – A Basic Structure of Judgement?
(2) The “Natural Attitude” vs. the Ordinary
(3) Transcendental Subjectivity vs. the “We” of OLP
(4) Voice and Subjectivity
(5) The Inner and the Outer
