"Phenomenology and Politics"
The Iranian Society of Phenomenology(ISP) in the Iranian Political Science Association(IPSA), in collaboration with Gham New Publishing, publishes a collection of translation and Essays on phenomenology and politics.
The present series introduces texts from various readings of Edmund Husserl's Transcendental Phenomenology that provide us with a new understanding of politics, and of being politicized to its audiences: a collection of translation and Essays that introduces fundamental concepts on the one hand,To obtain such a reading of our interpretation of phenomenological politics and political science , and on the other hand, prepares practical examples of such concepts in providing a phenomenological understanding of politics. So you can expect to find in this Series some collected body and embodiment, subjectivity and intersubjectivity, intentionality and intentional experience.Or some other works in which these concepts have been redefined politics and politicization while applying these concepts. It is our hope that by publishing this collection of works we will be able to provide new ways of understanding and studying politics, and thereby provide new methodological possibilities for the effectiveness of political science research. The works published in this collection, while common in their phenomenological tendencies, are by no means uniform. This is to prevent to turn the phenomenological approach into a one-dimensional and quasi-ideological approach to academic study or intellectual thought.
The Iranian Yearbook of Phenomenology:
In a first step to founding an Iranian Society for phenomenology, the inaugural Iranian Yearbook of Phenomenology is to be published.
Despite the importance of anti-enlightenment readings of existentialist phenomenology in Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre, phenomenological studies orientated toward politics (especially with a Husserlian accent) has never been institutionalized in Iran. The inaugural Iranian Yearbook of Phenomenology will launch this way of understanding socio-political ontology and other political concepts in Iran.
