Susan Stuart is a senior lecturer at the University of Glasgow. Her research is primarily in the area of hermeneutic philosophy with strong links to the phenomenological method. Her work centres on developing the notion of enkinaesthesia: the reciprocally affective neuro-muscular dynamical flows and muscle tensions that are felt and enfolded between co-participating agents, and felt, though not reciprocated, in our engagement with non-agential things. Currently she chairs the Consciousness and Experiential Psychology subsection of the British Psychological Society.
Open peer commentary on the article “The Uroboros of Consciousness: Between the Naturalisation of Phenomenology and the Phenomenologisation of Nature” by Sebastjan Vörös. Upshot: Vörös proposes that we phenomenologise nature and, whilst I agree with the spirit and direction of his proposal, the 4EA framework, on which he bases his project, is too conservative and is, therefore, unsatisfactory. I present an alternative framework, an enkinaesthetic field, and suggest further ways in which we might explore a non-dichotomised “betwixt” and begin to experience our world in a non-individuating, non-dual aspect.
