Phenomenology in Science and Literature

The problems under discussion here concern the phenomenological way of thinking in various fields of human activity. The phenomenological conception of quantum theory, resulting from an analogy made between Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology and Niels Bohr’s interpretation of quantum theory, is used as a basic conception here. While I certainly realize that the hypotheses and results of this investigation reach beyond Bohr’s interpretation, they are yet at the same time a logical extension of Bohr’s position to the field of existential phenomenology. By extending Bohr’s interpretation through the complementarity principle, “orthodox” quantum theory and the stream of consciousness writing and polyphony of contemporary fiction can be linked The basis for such an analogy is the fact that with both the atomic world and artistic reality the same phenomenological method of object construction is used.
