The crisis of meaning and the life-world : Husserl, Heidegger, Arendt, Patočka by Ĺubica Učník( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Crisis of Meaning and the Life-World, Ľubica Učník examines the existential conflict that formed the focus of Edmund Husserl's final work, which she argues is very much with us today: how to reconcile scientific rationality with the meaning of human existence. To investigate this conundrum, she places Husserl in dialogue with three of his most important successors: Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, and Jan Patočka. For Husserl, 1930s Europe was characterized by a growing irrationalism that threatened to undermine its legacy of rational inquiry. Technological advancement in the sciences, Husserl argued, had led science to forget its own foundations in the primary "life-world": the world of lived experience. Renewing Husserl's concerns in today's context, Učník first provides an original and compelling reading of his oeuvre through the lens of the formalization of the sciences, then traces the unfolding of this problem through the work of Heidegger, Arendt, and Patočka
Phenomenology and the Problem of Meaning in Human Life and History by L'ubica Ucnik( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume highlights the continuing relevance of Husserl?s phenomenology, through a selection of work from members of the Organization of Phenomenological Organizations. As their papers amply demonstrate, contemporary phenomenology retains its critical focus, even as the discipline continues to expand and diversify. The book consists of four sections. In the first, authors focus on the contemporary implications of Husserl?s critique of natural science and the problem of meaning; in the second, they draw upon phenomenological insights to help us understand present day social and ecological crises. The third includes contributions on the relationships between phenomenology, hermeneutics, literature and art; while in the final section, authors take up the work of prominent post-Husserlian phenomenologists to think through issues of language, interpretation, philosophy, religion and the history of ideas. In sum, the variety of approaches these thinkers take in order to understand issues that currently confront us richly demonstrates the enduring significance of Husserlian phenomenology for 20th- and 21st-century philosophy
The phenomenological critique of mathematisation and the question of responsibility : formalisation and the life-world by Lubica Učník( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited collection discusses phenomenological critiques of formalism and their relevance to the problem of responsibility and the life-world. The authors deal with themes of formalisation of knowledge in connection to the life-world, the natural world, the history of science and our responsibility for both our epistemic claims and the world in which we live. Readers will discover critiques of formalisation, the life-world and responsibility, and a collation and comparison of Patočkas and Husserls work on these themes.  Considerable literature on Husserl is presented here and the two themes of epistemic responsibility and the life-world are discussed together. This work specifically emphasises the interrelatedness of these existential aspects of his work – self-responsibility and the crisis – as not only epistemological, but also related to human life. This volume also introduces Jan Patočka to English-speaking readers as a phenomenologist in his own right. Patočka shows us, in pa

Asubjective phenomenology : Jan Patočka's project in the broader context of his work( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this volume shed light on the unique value of Patočka's asubjective phenomenology in the context of his entire oeuvre. Each original contribution highlights the importance of Patočka's historical engagement with phenomenology and modern thinking. Patočka's significance to phenomenology has largely gone unrecognised in the English- speaking world, a lacuna that this volume redresses
