THE WORLD PHENOMENOLOGY INSTITUTE

 

FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CAMBRIDGE CONFERENCE 2020

 

TOPIC:

 

PHENOMENOLOGICAL APPROACHES TO VIRTUALITY

 

The 2020 Cambridge WPI Conference will introduce the topic of phenomenological approaches to virtuality.  Of some particular interest should be the following:

  •          Husserl’s “unfilled intention” or horizon;
  •          the nature of aesthetic experience (for example: Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s account of painting, Maxine Sheets-Johnstone’s focus on dance);
  •          cognitive science versus phenomenological interpretation of human experience;
  •          Heidegger and artificial intelligence (and the follow-up by Gibson and Dreyfus, among others);
  •          phenomenology and organism-environment systems.           

Also, we acknowledge the need of some participants to continue their work on the previous year’s topic, Women Phenomenologists. 

We would like to encourage participants representing not only philosophy, but also literary studies, arts, and other areas suitable to phenomenological investigation.
