Aesthetic Genesis by Jeff Mitscherling
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book reverses the fundamental tenet of phenomenology-that all consciousness is intentional (that is, directed toward an object). Mitscherling rehabilitates the pre-modern concepts of 'intentional being' and 'formal causality' in the construction of a comprehensive phenomenological analysis of embodiment, aesthetic experience, interpretation of texts, moral behavior, and cognition.
