Judith Ferster , ‘ Reading Nature: The Phenomenology of Reading in the Parliament of Fowls ’, Mediaevalia , 3 ( 1977 ), 189–213, makes a similar point about the Parliament of Fowls when she writes ‘the poem chooses to demonstrate the possible creativity of loving discourse with the world through the part of the chain of discourse it occupies: the discourse between

and fear singular among the emotions, and it can be said that fear and hope are the Janus face that men and women wear when they turn to the future. Phenomenology has argued that human experience is enabled by emotional states underpinning the perception of the world. Not only does this emotional state precede all thoughts and considerations; it is the very condition of their possibility: human beings

from a language that he did not yet know how to read.18 He overrode social, national, and cultural difference with a claim of human presence: sheer Being authenticated his insight, fuelled by ‘my abhorrence of modern academicism’.19 It was phenomenology in reverse.

The theory will be a revival of existentialism. While it will take its point of departure from the content of Kierkegaard’s criticism of Hegel’s system, it will defer to the force of Adorno’s critique and the relevance of the deconstructionist critique of phenomenology to its own assumptions. This is no easy matter, since Adorno’s insistence on the unavoidable immanence of cultural mediation is hard to

While Goth lyrics speak of loneliness and faraway realms, the music accompanying them offers subtle glimpses of other times and places. Music’s ephemeral phenomenology, however, ensures that these fantasy realms

In the course of the discussion, Punter examines the relations between nature and spirit in relation to similar concerns found in Hegel, principally in The Phenomenology of Mind (1807) and Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion (1821–31).
