This first edition of a new electronic journal devoted to phenomenology raises two questions: (a) why phenomenology and (b) why the emphasis upon the Indo-Pacific region? The answer to the first question involves a further question, which is as relevant today as it was in 1934 when Edmund Husserl commenced writing his The Crises of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology: An Introduction to Phenomenological Philosophy. The question is: what constitutes the main categories of being human?
Professor Dreyer Kruger of Rhodes University in South Africa, was a mentor to myself and two of the current editors of the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology (IPJP). ...

pdf.png The Continuation of Phenomenology: A Fifth Period? - By Lester Embree  

Download

 In this article the author takes a reflective look at the past, present and future of phenomenology in a kind of Presidential ‘state of the science' approach. The Encyclopedia of Phenomenology acts as the authoritative positional backdrop for this ground-breaking article. Embree isolates several recognizable ‘stages' in the development of phenomenology, and ponders whether its current growth and permutations isn't leading us into a new stage. If so, this has implications for the way phenomenologically-oriented scholars and philosophers approach their discipline.

pdf.png Husserl’s Preemptive Responses to Existentialist Critiques - By Paul S. MacDonald  

Download

Existentialist thinkers often publicly acknowledged Husserl’s phenomenology as one of their main points of departure for treatment of such themes as intentionality, comportment, transcendence, and the lifeworld. Several central elements of Husserl’s approach were adopted by the Existentialists, but equal to their gratitude were vigorous declamations of Husserl’s mistakes, dead-ends and failures. Many of the Existentialists’ criticisms of Husserl’s project are well-known and have been rehearsed in various surveys of 20th century thought, but less well-remarked are the discrepancies between their complaints about Husserl’s aborted achievements and what Husserl actually delivered. This paper attempts to uncover the accuracy of some of their assessments of Husserl’s alleged failures and mistakes, whether or not Husserl actually held the position they claim he did, and especially whether or not Husserl was himself aware of some deficiency in his thematic analysis, and thus would have been able to offer a cogent response to critique. In doing so, a good case can be made that Heidegger, for example, quietly adopted some of Husserl’s main insights without credit, slanted his picture of Husserl’s work so that his own reversals had better purchase, or overlooked evidence that Husserl had already moved beyond that position. At least on some key topics, Husserl emerges as an exceptionally self-critical philosopher who had already gained the perspective more usually associated with an Existentialist orientation.

pdf.png Needs experienced by Persons with Late Stage AIDS - By Fred C. Rabbetts and Steve D. Edwards  

Download

The paper examines needs experienced during the late stage of AIDS with reference to a phenomenological explication of unstructured interviews with persons with acute symptoms of the disease. A distinct pattern of health care needs emerged, characterized by a relative emphasis on the psychosocial as distinct from biomedical or economical aspects of the disease and emotion focused coping strategies. Results are compared with those of other studies and implications for palliative care are discussed.

pdf.png Phenomenological Research Method, Design and Procedure: A Phenomenological Investigation of the Phenomenon of Being-in-Community - By Carl Holroyd  

Download

This project was conceived to determine the feasibility of using a phenomenological method of enquiry, based on Giorgi’s existential psychological method, for explicating the experience of being-in-community as experienced within a Community Building Workshop. This project served to inform a larger Master of Social Science research project concerned with building community within business.
In approaching this project it was decided to interview two people who had participated in separate CBWs, but not within a business context. The reason for this was purely pragmatic as two co-researchers (participants) were available for interviews within given time constraints. The focus of this project is on being-in-community as experienced in a CBW™.

pdf.png The “Things Themselves” in Phenomenology - By Peter Willis  

Download

The following paper explores the foundations of phenomenology, and seeks to provide those new to the discipline with ways of understanding its claims to assist knowers to attend to 'the things themselves'. Practical applications of this mode of inquiry are linked to adult education practice which is the author's field of practice but most of the ideas are readily applicable to social events and practices such as nursing, social work, recreation, history and the like.
