A Multidisciplinary Bibliography of Phenomenology

in 21st Century North America

Go to the Bibliography

Considering phenomenology a multidisciplinary tradition within which philosophy is no doubt the major but by no means the sole discipline, this bibliography may help colleagues in one discipline come to know what is currently being done phenomenologically in other disciplines in North America (it is hoped that similar regional bibliographies are developed for other regions).

A definition of phenomenology will not be ventured here. Instead, if a publication is about or conspicuously under the influence of one or more of the figures on the following list, which is no doubt incomplete, then it will be considered phenomenological and a bibliographical entry for it welcome here.

Hannah Arendt, Simone de Beauvoir, Ludwig Binswanger, Karl Bühler, Dorion Cairns, Ernst Cassirer, Jacques Derrida, Eugene Fink, Hans Georg Gadamer, Clifford Geertz, Aron Gurwitsch, Nicolai Hartmann, Martin Heidegger, Edmund Husserl, Roman Ingarden, Roman Jakobson, Karl Jaspers, David Katz, Fritz Kaufmann, Adrian van Kaam, Emmanuel Levinas, Gabriel Marcel, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Eugene Minkowski, Maurice Natanson, NISHIDA Kintaro, José Ortega y Gasset, Jan Patočka, Paul Ricoeur, Jean-Paul Sartre, Max Scheler, Christian Norberg-Schulz, Alfred Schutz, Edith Stein, Erwin Straus, and Wilber Marshall Urban.

Besides phenomenological philosophers, this list includes influential deceased phenomenologists who were in architecture, communicology, ethnology, linguistics, political theory, psychiatry, and psychology. Suggestions of more such figures are welcome.

          This bibliography is for current work published by phenomenologists located in North America and begins in 2001. In addition to (a) the usual author name, writing title, and publishing outlet volume and year in the format traditional in the discipline or outlet, entries should include (b) indication of the discipline of the author(s), (c) the email address and the web URL for his or her homepage when possible, and (d) an abstract of no more than 100 words.

  • “Schutz, Seebohm, and Cultural Science,” International Journal of Philosophical Studies, Vol. 16 (2008), pp. 731-744: Alfred Schutz emphasizes the methods of interpretative social sciences. Thomas Seebohm emphasizes the interpretation of texts and traces essential to the historical sciences. Their accounts are, in the main, mutually complementary, and together they advance the constitutive phenomenological theory of the generically cultural sciences.

Phenomenologists of all disciplines are invited to email bibliographical items on their publications from 2001 onwards and in this form to icnap.mail@gmail.com or use the "Contact" button above.
