Phenomenology Reading Group
Department of Philosophy
University of California, San Diego

The Phenomenology Reading Group (unofficially abbreviated: 'phe-re-grou', pronounced 'fay-ray-groo') is an informal group devoted to reading through and discussing some of the major texts in twentieth century European philosophy, with a special focus on the classical works of the phenomenological movement.  The group meets on a weekly (sometimes biweekly) basis.  Each term we pick a figure (or two) and try to read through as much of one (or two) of their major works as is possible.  Throughout the term, we each take turns opening the discussion of the week's readings.  Anyone interested in participating should contact Clinton Tolley [ctolley at ucsd.edu].
