Editorial Reviews


'What is phenomenology? Simon Glendinning has provided an original, artful, and provocative response to this question, provocative in the very best sense of the term ... This is an important book for those who want to understand better the phenomenological tradition and a book from which much is to be learned.' – John J. Drummond, Fordham University, USA, Mind, Vol. 118 . 471 . July 2009

'Simon Glendinning's original, rigorous and elegantly written book invites us to consider phenomenology not as a philosophical school or movement, but rather as a set of modernist texts which put naturalism and scientism in question in ways that should interest contemporary Anglo-American philosophers, and which open themselves to question by their successors in ways that might renew philosophy's relevance to contemporary culture. It is a provocation to thought that is also a pleasure to read.' – Stephen Mulhall, New College, Oxford

'A masterful exposé of the central themes and thinkers of the phenomenological revolution. Written in a lucid and engaging style, this volume deploys the best resources of both continental and analytic philosophy to prize open the thesaurus of the 'things themselves'. It deftly unravels the ethical and deconstructive implications of phenomenology in the twentieth century, from Husserl and Heidegger to Derrida and Levinas.' – Richard Kearney, Boston College, USA

'This rigorous and clear book is not only an outstanding advanced introduction to phenomenology but a development of this central philosophical inheritance for the English speaking world.' – Robert Eaglestone, University of London, UK

'This is a superior philosophical introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the trail from Husserl to Derrida. It is not a history of a ‘movement’, but an authoritative argumentative defence – in Glendinning’s distinctive voice – of an intellectual tradition opposed to the subsumption of the practice of philosophy under the methods of the natural sciences.' – Stella Sandford, Middlesex University, UK

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book. Possibly one of the best I've read in the last years. It is thorough, exhaustive, yet down to the point in its coverage of the fundamentals of phenomenology. The discussion of Husserl's account of signs is superb, as is the explanation of where and how Heidegger departs from the former. Perhaps not for the newcomers to the topic but a worthwhile read, and an ideal companion to Tom Sparrow's superb "The End of Phenomenology", where in fact I became aware of Glendinning's work.
