Requisite Pre-Publication Praise:

“A very important contribution to the foundation and the method of philosophy.”

One of the most accessible introductions to the thought of one of 20th-century France’s most important phenomenologists.”
—Jeffrey Kosky, Washington & Lee University

Informative Blurb: This book is Michel Henry’s most sustained investigation of Husserlian phenomenology. With painstaking detail and precision, Henry reveals the decisive methodological assumptions that led Husserlian phenomenology in the direction of Idealism. Returning to the materiality of life, Henry’s material phenomenology situates central phenomenological themes— intentionality, temporality, embodiment, and intersubjectivity—within the full concreteness of life. One of the most accessible of Henry’s books, Material Phenomenology is essential reading for those interested in the future of phenomenology or in a philosophy of life in the truest sense.

Leibniz Translations: Lloyd Strickland’s Website


Just a quick reference for those who, like me, are interested in Leibniz – I am teaching Theodicy in the Spring and I wanted to mention a website run by Lloyd Strickland – http://www.leibniz-translations.com/ – not much of Leibniz’s writings are available in English, so this is a great resource, I hope you will find it useful.  Here’s, for example, Leibniz’s The Philosopher’s Confession which can be found on the above-mentioned website (here in .pdf) – and there is more!
