Foundation Course in Phenomenology
01 to 31 October 2017

Centre for Phenomenological Studies is organizing a month-long foundation course in phenomenology for students and research scholars in philosophy and allied disciplines from October 1 to 31, 2017 in Pondicherry, India. The course will provide a comprehensive training in phenomenological themes focusing on the works of Edmund Husserl. The course will impart necessary skills and knowledge in phenomenology to undertake research in the area of existentialism, critical theory, postmodernism, consciousness studies, philosophy of mind and other contemporary schools of thought including phenomenology of religion, theology and the like. 

The course is modeled after the traditional Indian Gurukula system of education, where the students engage in a rigorous study of a philosophical tradition for an extended period of time under the guidance of a competent teacher. Students will stay in an environment suitable for reflective and meditative engagement with foundational texts to deepen their understanding of the tradition.

The principal resource person for the course will be Dr V.C. Thomas (formerly Professor of Philosophy, Pondicherry University). However, he will be assisted by Dr James Kurian (Madras Christian College, Chennai) and Dr E. P. Mathew (Loyola College, Chennai). In case you need any further clarifications, please feel free to mail us.
