Oxford Phenomenology Network


Oxford Phenomenology Network was founded in 2014 to facilitate, prompt, and promote interdisciplinary discussions relating to phenomenological theory and practice. We have now grown from an Oxford-based cluster to a truly international group. Our seminars, workshops, and conferences engage with the work of prominent phenomenologists (such as Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Edith Stein, and Jean-Paul Sartre), as well as that of lesser known phenomenological thinkers and practitioners.

Our cross-disciplinary themes include:

- perception

- embodiment

- consciousness

- the lived environment

- health and well-being

- human interaction

We warmly welcome anyone with an academic, professional, or amateur interest in phenomenology.
