The goal of the conference is to rethink the fundamental phenomenological categories of time and space in their ontological, epistemological, and existential manifestations. We also aim at reviewing their contemporary relevance in various research fields inspired and affected by phenomenology (phenomenological psychology, anthropology, psychopathology, and cognitive science). How is lived experience of time and space connected to its transcendental backbone? How are time and space related to one another? Which secondary phenomena can be phenomenologically reduced to time and space? What can empirically oriented sciences gain from theoretical-phenomenological considerations on time and space?

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Antoni Kępiński (1918-1972), a major 20th-century Polish phenomenological psychiatrist, a session of phenomenological psychopathology of time and space will be held.

We welcome proposals of papers in the following themes:

  • Contemporary relevance of classical phenomenological reflection on time and space (Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida etc.)
  • Lived experience of time and space; the relationship between time and space at different levels of experience (transcendental/ eidetic/ existential)
  • Ways of temporalizing and spatializing in diverse lifeworlds (phenomenological
  • Phenomenological underpinnings of empirical research on time and space (objectifying accounts of time and space)
    Time and space in 4E cognition – the contribution of phenomenology
  • Norm and pathology of temporal and spacial experience (theoretical phenomenological psychopathology and clinical cases)
  • Polish and Central-Eastern European phenomenologists on time and space
