What are the conditions of a writing breakthrough?
A quote from Joseph Conrad
How can we talk about disgust in a way that matches the force of it as an experience?
Can knowledge and experience ever reflect each other?
What must phenomenology do to be able to see past difficult cultural frameworks to the experience of things themselves?
To write a defence of masochism is a brave and difficult task. Weak claims about pain and pleasure undermine the effort.
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.
A lot of what is ‘peer-reviewed’ and published as phenomenology is, my stupid detector reports, stupid. But why?
