Angst - Hass - Vertrauen. Phänomenologie und Phänomenalität von Gefühlen

Heidelberg, 8th October 2019


Anxiety – Hate – Trust

Phenomenology and Phenomenality of Feelings

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019 

The German Society for Phenomenological Anthropology, Psychiatry, and Psychotherapy (DGAP) invites again to a one-day workshop on the subject of the phenomena and phenomenality of feelings. This includes work on social or collective aspects of emotions and affectivity as well as intrasubjective experiences.

Recent research has increasingly revolved around the intersubjectivity of emotions. What are the sociocultural conditions of feelings? What does staging and manipulability mean today, but also the rationality and radical nature of emotions? If social feelings such as anxiety, anger and hate are the legitimate subject of many considerations due to the current political circumstances, investigations on the individual experience of hope, trust and recognition are of interest, too. The workshop encourages to present not only theoretical and conceptual works, but also philosophical études which address specific emotional phenomena, be it the oceanic feeling, Weltschmerz, Angstlust, blazing wrath, or the original, basic trust.

This Call for Abstracts invites postgraduate students, doctoral candidates and postdocs of all relevant disciplines to contribute to the debate. Detailed abstracts have to be submitted by June 30th to Submissions may be in English or German and should not exceed 300 words. All participants will give a short presentation up to 20 minutes in order to permit an intensive discussion afterwards. Work in progress (e.g. master or doctoral thesis) may be presented. Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by July 15th. Invited contributors should send drafts (with a maximum of ten pages) by September 15th, so that a preliminary reader can be provided. Invited papers will be published in the open-access journal InterCultural Philosophy.
