Open peer commentary on the article “Anchoring in Lived Experience as an Act of Resistance” by Claire Petitmengin. Abstract: Micro-phenomenology is a successful research tool with major environmental implications. However, there is much to be gained by also approaching it as a philosophical method in its own right. As such, we use it as a critical practice of overcoming habitual conceptual distinctions between body and environment, inside and outside, rationality and feeling, reconnecting the thinking process to the experiencing body. Enacting this reconnection inspires the research and training of embodied critical thinking. Yet, one needs to be careful to not overstate micro-phenomenology as a solution for the social and environmental crisis.
