The Erotic Bird: Phenomenology in Literature by Maurice Natanson
English | 1998 | ISBN: 0691012199 | 187 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

How does literature illuminate the way we live? Maurice Natanson, a prominent champion of phenomenology, draws upon this method's unique power to show how fiction can highlight aspects of experience that are normally left unexamined. By exploring the structure of the everyday world, Natanson reveals the "uncanny" that lies at the core of the ordinary. Phenomenology–which involves the questioning of that which we usually take for granted–is for Natanson the essence of philosophy.
