Project Description:
I am currently working on a book project that examines the critical (including normative and socio-cultural) dimension of transcendental phenomenology through the lens phenomenological analyses of imagining consciousness understood as consciousness of possibilities. The project seeks to show the critical import of the tension between the transcendental-eidetic and historical methods of Husserlian phenomenology. Rather than crippling, the book argues, this tension makes possible incisive diagnostic and prescriptive work in a distinctive vein – one that does not shy away from examining both contingent and necessary conditions for meaning and rule constitution.
