Format: Hardcover
Erwin Straus' writings, especially those papers presented in this book, provide some of the most careful and insightful phenomenological psychology analyses to be found anywhere. Unlike many other phenomenological psychologists, Straus is not wedded to the thought of a particular phenomenological or existential philosopher. Instead, though obviously well-versed in philosophical phenomenology, Straus moves in his own, original directions, and does so without relying on the difficult jargon pervading the works of many phenomenologists. He does some brilliant, trailblazing work on such topics as the felt forms of spatial experience, the phenomenological texture of psychotic states, and the way the world discloses itself in intricate coordination with our bodily comportment. Although one might wish Straus put a little more emphasis on the social construction of lived experience, with which he deals little, he is a great psychologist and phenomenologist whose work should be carefully read and appreciated. Moreover, there are myriad contributions this work can make to debates, both philosophical and empirical, in contemporary disciplines such as psychoanalysis and cognitive science.
