Post-Intentional Phenomenology: The Philosophical Underpinnings
Pages 10

In order to clearly explicate how I am imagining post-intentional phenomenology, philosophically, I zero in on how “old”1 phenomenology from the days of Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Gadamer and others was indeed radical and how “new” phenomenology can be equally, if not more, radical than the old. I suggest, as I discussed to some extent in section 1, that the old phenomenology was countering centuries of philosophy that situated meaning, knowing, and being in Descartes’ stable self, subject, and consciousness, and in doing so, swathed a path, as we would say where I grew up in rural Minnesota, for all sorts of other philosophies to follow.
