Follow the link to my preface to Ferrarello’s book, “Phenomenology of Intersubjectivity and Values in Edmund Husserl.” In this short essay I turn to Husserl’s vision of phenomenology as “wakeful communalization” that must be shared in order to transcend a merely private reflection: Applebaum (2014) Preface to Phenomenology of Intersubjectivity and Values in Edmund Husserl



Intentionality, Narrativity, Husserl & Ricoeur

Oct 25th, 2014 | By

My latest article in the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology explores the psychological meanings of narratives through Husserl’s phenomenology in dialogue with Ricoeur’s hermeneutics. Ricoeur (1975) wrote, “On the one hand, hermeneutics is erected on the basis of phenomenology and thus preserves something of the philosophy from which it nevertheless differs: phenomenology remains the unsurpassable presupposition of hermeneutics. On the other

Fads, Phenomenology, and Cultural Psychology

Mar 27th, 2013 | By

I love Teo and Febbraro’s (2002) observation that “Psychology’s history can be studied as a history of fads” (p. 458). Teo (1996) has written that psychologists “have tended to value meta-theoretical constructions from outside their discipline more than those from inside their disciplines,” with the popularity of these constructions shifting as one or another current
