Questions of phenomenology

Language, alterity, temporality, finitude

Françoise Dastur

Translated by Robert Vallier

The book is organized into four areas of inquiry: “Language and Logic,” “The Self and the Other,” “Temporality and History,” and “Finitude and Mortality.” In each, Dastur guides the reader through a series of phenomenological questions that also serve to call phenomenology itself into question, testing its limits and pushing it in new directions. Taking a cue from Merleau-Ponty, Dastur sees phenomenology not as a doctrine, a catalogue of concepts and catchphrases authored by a single thinker, but rather asa movement in which several thinkers participate, each contributing to and inflecting the movement in unique ways.
