De la vida del tiempo. Temporalidad, afecto, sentido

Congreso Sociedad Española de Fenomenología

Sevilla, 15 - 18 September 2020

Official Website

Nowadays, time and our temporality have become an urgent problem. The cultural and civilizational transformations that we have been experiencing in the last decades give rise to different reorientations and mutations in the lived experience of time, that is ─sometimes inextricably─ interwoven with a “liquid” metamorphoses of subjectivity and intersubjectivity, transformations that take place outside the traditional course of a stable identity. This produces both critical and creative effects as well as a disastrous existential impact.

            The XIII Congress of the Spanish Society of Phenomenology (SEFE) asks these and many other questions in order to understand how these mutations of our experience of temporality affect our experience of subjectivity and, conversely, how self-understanding and the lived experience of subjectivity have influence on the lived experience of time.

The proposal of this Congress thus covers a wide range of issues, from the update of the phenomenological research about the lived time to the specific problems that allow phenomenology to advance in the field of an applied phenomenology around our temporality within the life-world, intertwined with our affective, valued life, and from multiple horizons of meaning.
