As a philosopher educated in the classics, as a crucial communicator of French thinking to the oftentimes heated German-language debates of the 1980s and 1990s, as the author of monographies on the questions of the strange, on answering and responsive rationality, on attentiveness, on "phenomenotechnology" and on problems of moral philosophy, Bernhard Waldenfels points out a direction to contemporary European philosophy that is entirely his own - all of it in the name of phenomenology, and first and foremost, the phenomeno-logy of Maurice Merleau-Ponty. With a tight connection to the classical philosophical tradition as well as to contemporary scientific disciplines, literature, the arts and everyday life, Waldenfels has lent his own signature to phenomenology. In this interview, we ask Bernhard Waldenfels to situate himself with respect to the question: What is phenomenological philosophy and what does it accomplish?
