This is an extremely well-conceived and well-executed project. By focusing on perception and cognition, the authors both show the contemporary relevance of phenomenology, and provide an excellent introduction to the phenomenological movement in philosophy. I also know of no other introductory text on phenomenology that is so relentlessly clear and jargon free. The authors have done a magnificent job of offering a coherent, sensible, illuminating, and fascinating review of the development of phenomenology and a justification of its enduring importance to philosophy.
