CFP - Phenomenology Roundtable

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 7:50pm

The Phenomenology Roundtable was founded at a meeting of the Radical Philosophy Assocation in November 2000, at Loyola University, Chicago. There, over coffee, several of us* gathered and discussed the lack of a space for doing phenomenology. We experienced the antagonistic and confrontational attitude of the dominant philosophical organizations; we bemoaned the lack of collegiality and constructivity in their meetings; and, most significantly, we noted the lack of a Husserlian starting point in most of the work of these groups. We decided we would form our own group aimed at a creative and supportive atmosphere in which we and other phenomenologists could discuss our work and interact with one another.
