Rediscovering phenomenology : phenomenological essays on mathematical beings, physical reality, perception and consciousness by Luciano Boi( )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond their remarkable technical accomplishments, the new directions taken by the sciences in recent decades call for renewal of their epistemological basis. The purpose of this book is to show that Husserl??'s transcendental phenomenology, if properly re-examined, provides the required framework for such an epistemology. This re-examination is both critical and constructive. (i) The absolute subjectivization or the full naturalization of consciousness must be rejected. (ii) The necessarily transcendental character of phenomenology is put to work in the search for a systematic connection betw

Constituting objectivity : transcendental perspectives on modern physics by Michel Bitbol( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, many philosophers of modern physics came to the conclusion that the problem of how objectivity is constituted (rather than merely given) can no longer be avoided, and therefore that a transcendental approach in the spirit of Kant is now philosophically relevant. The usual excuse for skipping this task is that the historical form given by Kant to transcendental epistemology has been challenged by Relativity and Quantum Physics. However, the true challenge is not to force modern physics into a rigidly construed static version of Kant's philosophy, but to provide Kant's method with flexibility and generality. In this book, the top specialists of the field pin down the methodological core of transcendental epistemology that must be used in order to throw light on the foundations of modern physics. First, the basic tools Kant used for his transcendental reading of Newtonian Mechanics are examined, and then early transcendental approaches of Relativistic and Quantum Physics are revisited. Transcendental procedures are also applied to contemporary physics, and this renewed transcendental interpretation is finally compared with structural realism and constructive empiricism. The book will be of interest to scientists, historians and philosophers who are involved in the foundational problems of modern physics

La basse fondamentale de Jean-Philippe Rameau et son objectivité : une approche phénoménologique by Benjamin Straehli( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Philippe Rameau has claimed that the fundamental bass is the principle of harmony. He also presents this fundamental bass as something which can be felt in musical practice. Nevertheless, he doesn't consider that feeling as a sufficient justification for his principle. As a consequence, he doesn't explain precisely what that feeling consists in, and he prefers to develop some physical and mathematical arguments to prove his theory.This thesis deals with the following issue: what is it like to feel the fundamental bass, and does this feeling really offer no sufficient justification for that concept? To answer those questions, attention has to be paid to the operations by which Rameau's reader is supposed to cultivate his own sensibility to harmony; and they shall be commented with the help of husserl's phenomenology. To provide a phenomenology of the fundamental bass, it is necessary to describe sounds more precisely than Rameau does in his treatises. Such a description shall be achieved thanks to Pierre Schaeffer's generalized solfeggio.But to make it possible, some preliminary work is required. An introduction shall argue that there is nothing strange in using Schaeffer's work to deal with harmony of the eighteenth century. The first four chapters are intended to clarify the concept of fundamental bass. The last four chapters are intended to produce a phenomenology of some aspects of sound, harmony and fundamental bass. At the end of this thesis, it appears that feeling can justify the fundamental bass to be considered as the principle of rules; but this justification does not have the strength Rameau was looking for
