The Basic Idea and Other Preliminaries

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Philosophy book series (BRIEFSPHILOSOPH)


In this chapter the basic idea of the book is presented in an intuitive way, using the metaphor of a world-model that experience “moves through.” This metaphor illuminates an explanatory dimension of phenomenology, whereby what we actually experience is informed by what expect to be the case in a given part of the world. Qualifications and simplifying assumptions are stated, and the project is related to existing efforts to formalize phenomenological structures.
