Dooyeweerd and Phenomenonology

Dooyeweerd's thought was significantly influenced by phenomenology, but he levelled a severe critique at its roots. Here we begin to compare and contrast them.

In a recent (20 April 2005) email, Roy Clouser gave a useful summary of this comparison:

"One quick addendum to Bruce's remarks: tho the WdW agrees with philosophical phenomenology about our being in direct contact with reality, rather than in direct contact with sense data or historical/linguistic constructions,etc., it disagrees that any account of reality is 'presuppositionless'. Religious orientation governs every interpretation of reality from which there can be no 'epoche'."

More to come.

This page is part of a collection of pages that links to various thinkers, within The Dooyeweerd Pages, which explain, explore and discuss Dooyeweerd's interesting philosophy. Email questions or comments would be welcome.
