Schutzian Phenomenology and Hermeneutic Traditions links Alfred Schütz to the larger hermeneutic tradition in Continental thought, illuminating the deep affinity between Schutzian phenomenology and hermeneutics. The essays collected here explore a broad spectrum of Schutzian themes and concerns, from Schutzs concrete affinities to hermeneutic traditions, his interpretationism and the pragmatist nature of Schutzs thought, to questions concerning the role of the media and music in our understanding of the life-world and intersubjectivity. The essays go on to explore the practical applicability of Schutzs thoughts on questions regarding economics, literature, ethics and the limits of human understanding.
Given ist emphasis on the application of Schutzian ideas and concepts, this book willbe of special interest to a wide range of readers in the social sciences and humanities, who are interested in the application of phenomenology to social, political, and cultural phenomena.
