Chapter Summary

The author suggests that the experience of time is a reflection on change and rhythm. And that the phenomenological study of time needs to be based on a bracketing of taken-for-granted understandings of time. This study would consist in three stages: 1) a conceptual preparation in which studies of rhythm-phenomenological, musical, literary, sociological, biological, philological, psychological, aesthetic, environmental and others would be surveyed in order to produce a primary set of hermeneutic operators to be employed in the second stage; 2) a practical group phenomenology conducted according to a regulated set of principles, guidelines and practices, by a trained team of researchers examining their own experience of rhythm in various environments, social contexts, and in their own bodies and daily lives; and 3) a transcendental phenomenology aiming at rhythm construed as essence of time and the social.

Keywords: group phenomenological method; phenomenology of rhythm; transcendental phenomenology
