Applebaum: Introducing Husserl’s phenomenology to psychology students

Aug 29th, 2012 | By | Category: Merleau-Ponty

This PowerPoint presentation was developed for the first meeting of a seminar introducing psychology students to phenomenological psychological research, and assumes no prior knowledge of Husserl or continental philosophy. The descriptive phenomenological research method itself is introduced in depth over the course of the semester–this presentation is a “first taste” of Husserlian terms for students. Naturally, I added many life-world examples during the presentation, “translating” philosophical phenomenology into psychological contexts, with the help of many good questions from the students.
