    Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


    Husserl’s Ideen II, our central text, is a fragmented work with a betwixt position in Husserl’s Gesammelte Werke; as such it echoes mythic structures. ... this paper argues that for many aspects of life, explanation-based models fail to explain while they simultaneously ignore the ethical consequences of that failure ... this paper argues that dichten (v. poem-ing) is the method for doing phenomenology ... this paper argues that to engage in the ‘phenomenological attitude’ is primarily an actual ‘writing-out’ of aspects of first-person experience in a description ... this paper argues that aesthetic decisions in expressing experience, such as pain or empathy, in intersubjective structures, such as writing-reading, are ethical decisions ... this paper argues that the expression of a subject is an inseparable part of the subject itself.
