Fenomenologia e Storia è stato rinviato

Rome (March 10, 2020)

In compliance with the Prime Ministerial Decree of 9 March 2020, the philosophy conference on the theme “Phenomenology and History”, scheduled for 20 March 2020, has been postponed.

We will take care to communicate the new date of the conference.

If the theme of time is evidently decisive for phenomenology, history appears more neglected. Going “to things themselves”, founding philosophy as “rigorous science”: the Husserlian slogans trace a radically speculative path and are little inclined to the reconstruction of contingent data. However, in some moments of its development, the phenomenological movement has proved capable of recognizing the importance of history. So much so that it seems to become not only an object of study, but sometimes it comes to inflict a backlash on the method itself.

Is a phenomenology that is not historical then possible?

The meeting will attempt to answer this question, analyzing some authors and relevant theoretical junctions on the matter.
