Phenomenology and the other

phenomenology facing the twenty-first century

Javier San Martín

pp. 179-195

According to Lester Embree, phenomenology has entered into the twenty-first century with its attention turned toward an anthropology that deals with the topics of gender, multiculturality, and ecology. In this chapter, I propose that the topic of otherness helps bring together and clarify these three main developments by articulating them in the following ways: first, as our other, i.e., the other sex; second, as the distant others, i.e., the others of other cultural worlds; and third, as the voiceless other in its two modalities i.e. our descendants and other animals. In this last case, both such modalities of the voiceless other lead to the topics of the environment and ecology.
