Amedeo Giorgis Empirical Phenomenology.
In August 1979, Amedeo Giorgi presented a workshop on "Phenomenological Theory and Method" at the University of Goteborg (Sweden). This report describes that workshop. First, the major concepts of phenomenology are introduced (Intentionality, Description, Reduction, and Essence), followed by a brief description of Husserl's philosophical phenomenology. The second section of the report describes the idea of the "subject-world relation", i.e. the outological claim that the relation is a non-causal one. To illustrate differences of opinion between Husserl and Merleau-Ponty, three aspects of the relation are described: internal/external, experience/behavior, and facts/possibilities. Finally, a comparison is made between phenomenology as a philosophy and phenomenologically grounded empirical psychology. (Author/BW)
