Example text

They stand in contrast to other objects that the child learns to avoid as unpleasant or painful. To distinguish these objects, to point them out, to name them, to reach or call for them is the way a child begins to make sense of its immediate environment. The objects in this environment, be they useful or pleasurable, are objects for the child. The child engages with them and learns how to manipulate them. From such experiences and achievements, the consciousness of the child emerges and becomes the foundation for the consciousness of the adult.

They fall into the trap only when they are unable to extricate themselves from possible solipsistic implications of their data and the theoretical consequences of this. There are safeguards within the phenomenological method itself. Its adherents are obliged to make use of them. APPROACHING THE PHENOMENOLOGICAL METHOD: HUSSERL'S MODEL Before speaking of the phenomenological method, or of phenomenological methods, I have to say a few words of caution. Most of all, in our context, the term method does not signify what it usually signifies in such academic disciplines as psychology or sociology: a specific technique for the gathering of specific data (observational or experimental techniques) or else for the presentation (analysis) of these data (statistical techniques).

If we want to think about and talk about inner consciousness, we have to use a language that originated pragmatically as language serving the practical purposes of dealing with objects and events in the outer world. Forewarned, we may devise our terms as carefully as possible. In spite of such efforts, we may still find that such a language remains rather inadequate for our purpose. Yet, it will have to do, because it is the only language we have. That means we cannot escape the paradox that Henri Bergson brought forcefully to our attention.
