Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Bodily experience is an important 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, Sartre and Husserl. In the second part, we will explore some different kinds of bodily experience, focusing on the themes of skilled bodily performance, gender, race, illness, and pain.

Literatur

There are one or two core readings for 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. They 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.
