How can we talk about disgust in a way that matches the force of it as an experience?
Writing in phenomenology is Ausdruck, not a result.
Messy, difficult and inconsistent. That is good philosophy.
Want something for free? The world, the oyster, are given to you. Giveness is a quality of the world bestowed to anyone who cares to perceive.

Phenomenology can seem like a lot of long words and concepts but it’s really a process for seeing the world as it is.
Too often, phenomenology is made into a step-by-step process that claims a knowledge outcome. Knowledge, however, in a phenomenological study, is an altogether different beast.

To write a description is to wield a special magic. Description moves us from being blind, dull and predictable into being visionary, original and of truth.
