journal update

Available now online, an editorial by Claudia Welz (University of Aarhus, Denmark) for the JBSP special issue: Phenomenology of Listening.

Claudia Welz – ‘Editorial to JBSP Special Issue on the Phenomenology of Listening’ (52:4): JBSP (Originally published online: 6 September 2021).

From the editorial: The collection of articles in this issue originated in a series of lectures and research seminars that I organized at the Center for the Study of Jewish Thought in Modern Culture, University of Copenhagen, in connection with my “Semper Ardens” Fellowship within the Humanities and Social Sciences, sponsored by the Danish Carlsberg Foundation (grant CF16-0517). In these events, which took place in 2017-2018, a multi-disciplinary approach to a phenomenology of listening was developed with a special emphasis on the foreignness of the word, voice, or speech experienced by a person who becomes moved and de-centered by more or less harmonious or conflictual events of resonance in-between subjectivity and alterity. The articles in this special issue focus on various aspects of a phenomenology of listening. Thematically and in terms of the disciplines involved, this special issue can be divided in two parts: the first three contributions in Part I address hermeneutical, theological, and anthropological aspects of listening; the last three contributions in Part II combine existential philosophy, ethics and poetry, while also addressing psycho(patho)logical issues.
