BACK to the THINGS THEMSELVES!
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
BTTTT! is solely interested in the phenomenological practice of carefully describing the appearances of things in their concrete, situational givenness, without drawing on metaphysical, scientific, or other explanatory preconceptions. We ascribe to no single “orthodox” phenomenological method. Indeed, we embrace diverse approaches to “the things themselves,” so long as these approaches are focused on encounters with experience untainted by conceptual impositions. The goal should be to live behind one’s own eyes, to heed the call of things, and to attempt to give things their own voice as purely as possible, so as to reveal their sense and significance within their larger matrices of lived meaning.
BTTTT! invites those engaged in this kind of phenomenological practice to generate original descriptions of the life-world.
