A central aim of this chapter is to show the extent to which the philosophical movement of phenomenology includes within it some of the leading figures of the analytic movement. Taking this point seriously suggests that the emergence of phenomenology should count as the major philosophical event of the past one hundred years of philosophy. Phenomenology is not itself a unified movement. One can reasonably distinguish between phenomenology in the Cartesian tradition and phenomenology that is not; between phenomenology in the existentialist tradition and phenomenology that is not; between phenomenology in the idealist tradition and phenomenology that is not; between phenomenology in the analytic tradition and phenomenology that is not. What is not clear at all is that the latter concerns a distinction between analytic phenomenology and something called “Continental” phenomenology.

Keywords:   Phenomenology, Cartesian tradition, existentialist tradition, idealist tradition, analytic tradition
