Experience Grows by its Edges

A Phenomenology of Relations in an American Philosophical Vein

(p.372) Chapter Nineteen Experience Grows by its Edges
The Drama of Possibility

John J. McDermott

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents an essay on the phenomenology of reflections in classical American philosophy. It argues that classical American philosophy and phenomenology share both assumptions and endeavour, and both traditions resonate with philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty's description of phenomenology. Merleau-Ponty suggests that the opinion of responsible philosophers must be that phenomenology can be practiced and identified as a style or manner of thinking, and that it existed as a movement before arriving at complete awareness of itself as a philosophy.

Keywords:   phenomenology, reflections, classical American philosophy, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, essay
