Minor rubbing. Small ink mark to cover. VG. 23x15cm, ix, 238 pp, PAPERBACK. "This book presents the major philosophical doctrines of phenomenology in a clear, lively style with an abundance of examples. The book examines such phenomena as perception, pictures, imagination, memory, language, and reference, and shows how human thinking arises from experience. It also studies personal identity as established through time and discusses the nature of philosophy. In addition to providing a new interpretation of the correspondence theory of truth, the author also explains how phenomenology differs from both modern and postmodern forms of thinking"-Publisher's description.

I am a practising artist using the camera as a tool to capture photographs of objects. Both personal and random encounters.
I use this practice as a research study at university, where I'm in the continual process of trying to understand how the work operates and how the meaning of the image is expressed and experienced.
Robert Sokolowski's book is a brilliant introduction to phenomenology. It is written in a simple yet unique style that flows through the book. I wanted to state that I'm not a philosophy student, but continually find that this book relates to my work as an artist/researcher.
My advice would be to read the whole book as it is more of a journey, than something you can just pick up.
It is well worth the read and in my case as been and will be extremely useful to my work and to the way I think and feel about things in the future.
This is a clear introduction to phenomenology without the confusion of terms you may encounter within another book.
Sokolowski gets to the root of phenomenology which enables you later on if required to research the pioneers, but the crucial point is he first gives you the grounding that other books take for granted that you already know.
