Today's session introduces the topic of Intersubjectivity and the Problem of the Other in Continental Philosophy, offering an overview of Husserl and Merleau-Ponty's theories in preparation for next week's closer look into Merleau-Ponty's “Other Selves and the Human World” (in Part II of Phenomenology of Perception).
An agenda for the series, including the philosophers and texts we'll be examining, is found HERE, in case you'd like to do some reading along with us as we go through the series.
