Peter Ashwor th Shefeld Hallam University An Approach to Phenomenological Psychology: The Contingencies of the Lifeworld In Hannah Arendt’s (1978) refreshing account of the phenomenological approach, she reminds us: The primacy of appearance is a fact of everyday life which neither the scientist nor the philosopher can ever escape, to which they must always return from their laboratories and studies, and which shows its strength by never being in the least changed or deflected by whatever they may have discovered when they withdrew from it. (p. 24) This realm of “mere appearances” is, of course, the lifeworld . Surely this is the most central concept of all for phenomenological psychology. In saying this I am of course assuming that the lifeworld is under- stood to be a province of Husserl’s realm of investiga- tion, the things themselves in their appearing . The articles in this issue of the Journal are written by authors with a shared viewpoint on phenomeno- logical psychology which focuses on the lifeworld. This viewpoint was developed as a result of collabora- tions of various sorts at Shefeld Hallam University, England.
