Phaenomenologica #206: Collected Papers VI. Literary Reality and Relationshipsby Michael (edt) Barber
Synopses & Reviews
The three essays in this volume illuminate Alfred Schutz's understanding of literature and literary relationships. The first, "Life Forms and Meaning Structures," presents such ideal life-forms as duration, memory, the speaking ego, and the I in relation to the Thou. This essay also describes the fundamental nature of human experience, its pluralized realms, the passage of time, perspectival interpretation, action and its impediments--all concepts which make possible an understanding of literature and literary themes.
These writings by Alfred Schutz, some in their first English translation, examine the "normative" areas of literature and ethics, addressing the author-reader relationship, multiple realities, the literary province of meaning, and Schutz's views on equality.
