Abstract

jsp Alia Al-Saji mcgill university Andrew Cutrofello loyola university chicago Phenomenology has always dwelled on the borders. Its methods border on those of psychology, logic, and anthropology; its contents, on those of virtually every other discipline. From the beginning phenomenology has been concerned with beginnings and endings—temporal borders—and with finite and infinite forms (spatial borders). Philosophically, phenom- enology borders on existentialism, hermeneutics, philosophy of religion, feminism, critical race theory, psychoanalysis, cognitive science, and other fields of inquiry. Such borders are obviously not well defined, which is not to say that they do not exist. Phenomenology dwells on its borders by letting itself be challenged about how it represents them. To dwell on borders is not only to live on them but to think about what they do, how they abide and change, and how they undergird or destabilize our thinking. Directly or indirectly, the articles in this special issue of the Journal of Speculative Philosophy all dwell on phenomenology’s borders. They were presented at the fifty-sixth annual meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and journal of speculative philosophy, vol. 32, no. 3, 2018 Copyright © 2018 The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA 326 a lia al-saji and andrew
