New phenomenological perspectives on the Crisis and the Lifeworld

Wuppertal, August 27-28

Husserl considered the works of his last period as the most mature results of his researchs. In a widespread feeling of crisis, his reflections cover aspects such as culture, lifeworld, their relationship with the sciences, intersubjectivity and historicity, opening up broader issues to be taken up and unfolded by later phenomenologists. Almost a century later, in a horizon with extensive references to the crisis of Europe and the global crisis, to study the texts of the Crisis in their many dimensions is an opportunity to analyse the fullfilment of their projections, and the deployment of the central issues in new theoretical and historical frames. This conference provides a space to discuss these essential topics that reveal the power of Phenomenology within the current context.
