Reading Brentano naturally led me to Husserl (pronounced “her-sool”). Those interested in finding out about the philosophical origins of embodiment and embedded thinking may enjoy these interviews by Byran Magee with Dreyfus.
Part 1. In which he discusses the influence of Husserl on Heidegger.
Part 2. Heidegger’s undertanding of Dasein.
Part 3. Heidegger’s Articulated intention – contexts of significance.
Part 4. Heidegger’s ”towards which” and “for the sake of” and Heidegger’s change to thinking historically.
Part 5. In which Sartre is dismissed and Merleau-Ponty introduces the body as our way of being in the world and sums up what he considers to be the contemporary ongoing significance of phenomenology.
