The Phenomenology Reader is the first comprehensive anthology of seminal writings in phenomenology. Carefully selected readings chart phenomenology's most famous thinkers, such as Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre and Derrida, as well as less well known figures such as Stein and Scheler. Ideal for introductory courses in phenomenology and continental philosophy, The Phenomenology Reader provides a comprehensive introduction to one of the most influential movements in twentieth-century philosophy.

Industry Reviews

'In addition to such central figures as Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and Gadamer, this book also contains clear introductions to, and useful excerpts from Reinach, Scheler, Stein, de Beauvoir, Arendt, Derrida, and Ricoeur. The result is a rich, informative, reliable, and highly readable guide to phenomenology from its inception to the present day.' - David Bell, Sheffield University

'A judiciously selected and carefully edited series of readings in phenomenology. It will make an ideal sourcebook for students and an excellent textbook for teachers.' - Simon Critchley, University of Essex

'Clearly the product of serious thinking and a significant contribution ... the anthology is exemplary in its comprehensiveness, accessibility and its combination of informative discussion with critical evaluation.' - Critical and Cultural Theory
