Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Contents:
Bodily experience is a central theme in the writings of many phenomenologists. Phenomenologists maintain that the body is not merely an object of experience, with which a subject of experience is intimately but contingently associated. The body is also that through which we perceive and understand the world, and our embodied nature shapes every aspect of our experience. The first part of this course will reflect upon the nature of bodily experience in the writings of Merleau-Ponty and Sartre. In the second part, we will turn to the work of more recent authors, in order to explore the diversity of bodily experience. Themes to be addressed include skilled bodily performance, gender, race, illness, and pain.

Methods:
*focused readings of key articles, book chapters, and book sections
*individual and group presentations in seminars
*‘mini-lectures’ by the seminar leader
*detailed critical discussion of texts, themes, concepts, and claims
*writing two short essays, each focusing on a specific text

Aims:
Students will:
*become familiar with historical and contemporary phenomenological work on bodily experience
*learn how to interpret, clarify, and critically discuss texts and ideas
*prepare and give a presentation on a specific text
*learn how to write short, specifically focused, well-structured scholarly essays

Literatur

There are one or two core readings for each of seminars 2-13, consisting of journal articles, chapters from edited volumes, and passages from books. These are marked *. Students are expected to read all of them. Readings will be made available on-line via moodle at least one week before the relevant seminar. Reading for the first, introductory seminar can be consulted afterwards. However, for all other seminars, the reading should be done in advance. In cases where a source is available in one or more languages, you are welcome to consult whichever translation you are most comfortable with, although only the English language version will be posted on moodle. Other readings are also recommended, some of which will be posted on moodle. However, students are not obliged to consult these.
