Phenomenology and its Futures
29-31 March 2013
Department of Philosophy, University of Johannesburg, South Africa

Organized by Rafael Winkler and Catherine Botha


Born in 1900-1901 with the publication of Husserl’s Logical Investigations, phenomenology has since undergone many changes, developments and critiques both in its methods and tasks. Serving in Husserl as a critical method of reflection on consciousness and its cognitive achievements against its naturalization in the natural sciences, phenomenology has also inspired authors such as Max Scheler, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Gabriel Marcel, Simone de Beauvoir, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Luc Nancy, Michel Henry, Emmanuel Levinas, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Paul Ricoeur and Jacques Derrida to address the question of value, the meaning of being, existence, the lived body, the Other, life, art, history and language in original and fresh ways.

The aim of this three-day international conference is to bring together philosophers and postgraduate students from different institutions in South Africa and abroad to reflect on the fate of phenomenology in the 21st century.
