Post-Intentional Phenomenology in Practice

ByMark D. Vagle

There is an "art" to the creation of a good compilation of music. Just as Nick Hornby indicated in High Fidelity, making a tape is like writing a letter-there is a lot of erasing and rethinking and starting again. Sometimes it is important, when crafting post-intentional phenomenological texts, to let entire excerpts and images be put in dialogue with other excerpts and images. As one continues through Dr. Joseph Pate's text one not only reads about the phenomenon but has the opportunity to engage in and experience the phenomenon itself. Sometimes it is important, when crafting post-intentional phenomenological texts, to let entire excerpts and images be put in dialogue with other excerpts and images. Pate opens his text with a prelude in which he not only invites the reader to the text and to the phenomenon, but also helps the reader begin to understand the importance of creating a collection of music.
