By Joseph J. Kockelmans (auth.), Joseph J. Kockelmans (eds.)

Over the earlier many years many books and essays were written on phenomeno­ logical psychology. a few of these guides are ancient in personality and have been designed to provide the reader an concept of the foundation, which means, and serve as of phenom­ enological psychology and its most crucial tendencies. Others are theoretical in nature and have been written to offer the reader an perception into the ways that numerous authors conceive of phenomenological psychology and the way they test. to justify their perspectives in mild of the philosophical assumptions underlying their conceptions. ultimately, there are quite a few guides within which the authors don't speak about phenomenological psychology, yet relatively try and do what used to be defined as attainable and priceless within the first forms of courses. a few of these at­ tempts to do the latter were rather winning; in different situations the consequences have 1 been disappointing. This anthology features a variety of essays which i've got introduced jointly for the specific function of introducing the reader to the Dutch university in phenomenological psychology. The Dutch university occupies an immense position within the phenomenological circulate­ ment as a complete. Buytendijk used to be one of many first Dutch students to give a contribution to the sector, and for numerous many years he remained the crucial determine of the school.

These sciences have had nothing to do with philosophy since early modern times. If the contemporary physicist would agree with Heisenberg that "the Cartesian distinction between res cogitans and res extensa is no longer a valid starting point for understanding modern natural science,"s still, the insight itself was not achieved on the basis of philosophical considerations but through the advance of experimental research.

Even though in this science, too, contemporary researchers, as a consequence of their own investigations, more and more thoroughly reject Cartesianism and the associated philosophical ideas of modern times, the field of psychology has always been and remains today the missionary field for philosophy. Hence there is in psychology a philosophical fashion, whose influence we may not underestimate. It is often the expression of a discontent or a bad conscience resulting from scientific work. Both conditions may be regarded as preliminary preparations for entering new regions of 2.
