Bei Sinnen sein? Internationale Tagung zur Phänomenologie der Sinneswahrnehmung

Landau in der Pfalz, 27 - 28 September 2018

Official Website

In current debates in the philosophy of perception there is a primacy of the visual. Is it possible to overcome this tendency through an analysis of phenomenological approaches? Is the phenomenology of olfactory, auditory, haptic or taste experiences constitutively different from a phenomenology of visual experiences? If it is different, how is it possible to develop a holistic conception of sense-perception? And if it is not, how can we speak of different senses? Is our everyday interaction with sensible objects synaesthetic in general? Aim of this meeting is the thematization of sense-perception from an array of different perspectives and current fields of inquiry beyond the dualism of phenomenology and analytic philosophy.
