Editorial Reviews


"Anyone who questions the vitality of contemporary phenomenology as a site of radical questioning will find the perfect antidote in Fifty Concepts for a Critical Phenomenology. The rich variety of marginalized perspectives represented here is a valuable corrective to so many works of philosophy that have gone before." —Robert Bernasconi, author of How to Read Sartre

"An invaluable resource. Not only does it offer a clear overview of key texts and figures both within the center and the periphery of the phenomenological tradition, but it also stands as a crucial critical intervention in the practice of phenomenology itself. It challenges us take seriously the ‘infinite task’ of better understanding the very ways and means whereby we understand the world and our role in it. It shows, in other words, that rigorous phenomenology must be ‘critical,’ and that critical phenomenology demands that we leave behind the comfort of tradition.” —Michael J. Monahan, author of The Creolizing Subject: Race, Reason, and the Politics of Purity

Fifty Concepts may just be the best introductory text I’ve read. Clearly written essays by some of the best minds around articulate compelling connections between phenomenology’s traditional concerns (embodiment, experience, perception, e.g.) and crucial contemporary issues (immigration, disability, race, gender identity, queerness, e.g.). Individually and together, the essays demonstrate just how critical phenomenology is to philosophy and to our contemporary world. Highly recommended!” —Ellen T. Armour, author of Signs and Wonders: Theology After Modernity
