Back to the Things Themselves! (BTTTT!) is an annual attempt to put aside the more conventional scholarly practice of textual exegesis/critique, and return to the lived world to divine the essential structures of experience through rigorous phenomenological description. While BTTTT! is guided by important scholarly contributions about phenomenology, its main aim is to “do phenomenology”—that is, to generate original descriptions of phenomena in the lifeworld. BTTTT! is part of the Society for Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture (EPTC), which meets annually and concurrently with the Canadian Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in late May or early June.
