The Sense of Things: Toward a Phenomenological Realism by Angela Ales Bello

By Angela Ales Bello

It takes as its critical factor for exploration the best way human recognition unfolds, i.e., in the course of the dating among the I and the world―a box of phenomenological research that can't and must never stay closed in the limits of its personal disciplinary borders. The publication makes a speciality of the query of realism in modern debates, finally dismantling prejudices and automatisms that one reveals therein. It indicates that on the root of the debate among realism and idealism there frequently lie equivocations of a semantic nature and by way of going again to the origins of contemporary phenomenology it places into play a dialogue of the Husserlian notion of transcendental idealism. Following this direction and neutralizing the intense positions of a serious idealism and a naïve realism, the e-book proposes a “transcendental realism”: the horizon of a dynamic harmony that embraces the method of cognition and that grounds the relation, and never the subordination, of topic and item. The research of this reciprocity permits the surpassing of the bounds of the area of understanding, resulting in primary questions surrounding the final word feel of items and their beginning.
