Acquaintance, For-me-ness, and Revelation. Some major phenomenological attractions a.y. 2021/22


Revelation is the thesis according to which having an experience – that is to say: being acquainted with it – is to know its nature. 
The course focuses on acquaintance and revelation in order to outline a non-physicalist (neo-)phenomenological view of the mind.
An important feature of this view, which under the label 'for-me-ness' is also a focus of the course, is the thesis that we are phenomenologically acquainted with the self.
