Understanding Phenomenology provides a concise and accessible guide to one of the most important schools of thought in modern philosophy. The book traces phenomenology¿s historical development, beginning with its founder, Edmund Husserl, and continuing with the later, "existential" phenomenology of Heidegger, Sartre and Merleau-Ponty. Each chapter provides a masterly distillation of each philosopher¿s refinements to the movement¿s core ideas and provides readers with a clear picture of how phenomenology moved from primarily a theory of knowledge to a new philosophical method.
