Reading group: Reflective analysis

In this reading group we focus on an text by the American philosopher Lester Embree: Reflective Analysis, A First Introduction to Phenomenological Investigations (2011).
This is an introductory book for those who want to become familiar with phenomenology, one of the most important movements in contemporary philosophy.
The book is for beginners, it requires no previous knowledge of philosophy and it presents phenomenology not from an historical point of view but as a method that can be used in many areas. Each chapter contains exercises and it aims at producing analyses.
During our meeting we will discuss a chapter or a section of the book.
An electronic copy of the text will be circulated in advance.

There is no charge for this meet up. We will meet at the bar.

PLEASE READ CHAPTER 2 (ACCOUNTING) AND DO ALL THE EXERCISES.

    It sounds like a great meet up tonight.

      Hi Angelo. Just to complete my last message. So sorry for not making it on Fri. Got out of work too late. Let me know if it was a good night by all. And I am looking forward to the next meetup for fellow philosophers.

    Hi Martina – yes, that's the book were using.

    As for this week's exercise, Embree's chapter on Feigning in the link below uses his "new" terminology in a few different contexts. Still not sure, though, if they are any clearer.

    Hi, I'd really like to get to this, but I will have to see over the next week. However, I thought to myself it does sound interesting and I must look up where I can get the book the quickest. I found this and sharing just in case it's of any use to anyone else :

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
