1 Review
This book presents the major philosophical doctrines of phenomenology in a clear, lively style with an abundance of examples. The book examines such phenomena as perception, pictures, imagination, memory, language, and reference, and shows how human thinking arises from experience. It also studies personal identity as established through time and discusses the nature of philosophy. In addition to providing a new interpretation of the correspondence theory of truth, the author also explains how phenomenology differs from both modern and postmodern forms of thinking.

This is eminent reading. Probably the best introduction to phenomenology I have ever read. Sokolowski is a good writer, but even better; he is an eminent thinker. This should book should be "must read" for everyone interested in phenomenology. Really. Read full review
