Introduction to Phenomenology is an outstanding and comprehensive guide to phenomenology. Dermot Moran lucidly examines the contributions of phenomenology's nine seminal thinkers: Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer, Arendt, Levinas, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Derrida.
Written in a clear and engaging style, Introduction to Phenomenology charts the course of the phenomenological movement from its origins in Husserl to its transformation by Derrida. It describes the thought of Heidegger and Sartre, phenomonology's most famous thinkers, and introduces and assesses the distinctive use of phenomonology by some of its lesser known exponents, such as Levinas, Arendt and Gadamer. Throughout the book, the enormous influence of phenomenology on the course of twentieth-century philosophy is thoroughly explored.
This is an indispensible introduction for all unfamiliar with this much talked about but little understood school of thought. Technical terms are explained throughout and jargon is avoided. Introduction to Phenomenology will be of interest to all students seeking a reliable introduction to a key movement in European thought.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Moran's writing is consistently clear, and his work provides information useful to readers of various philosophical backgrounds interested in familiarizing themselves with phenomenology... "Introduction to Phenomenology remains an extensive and worthy reference work."
-"Review of Metaphysics
"This is an excellent book which can be warmly recommended not just to someone with a particular interest in phenomenology and its history but to anyone with a genuine interest in philosophy. It is impressively erudite but never dull."
-" Philosophical Quarterly
..."a lively narrative that avoids the tedium of excessive argumentation and theoretical exposition."
-"Choice, September 2000
"For years philosophers have been looking for a clear, engaging, accurate introduction to phenomenology to recommend to students and read themselves. This is the book."
-Charles Guignon, University of Vermont
..."the most accessible, the most scholarly, and philosophically the most interesting account of the phenomenological movement yet written."
-David Bell, University of Sheffield
