FIELD-DYNAMIC PHENOMENOLOGY. From Heideggerian Phenomenology to Field-Phenomenological Science. Introduction. Field-dynamic phenomenology is a post-Husserlian and post-Heideggerian understanding of phenomenology.
From Heideggerian Phenomenology
to Field-Phenomenological Science
“Subjectivity, phenomenologically, simply refers to a field of presence, i.e., an immediate non-localised gestalt, “opening” or “awareness” whose content is determined by events of mediation or determination – by ‘objects’ of awareness - such that the field is always a field of events and never an abstract field of ‘consciousness-in-itself’. The events in turn are always events within a field, context or gestalt of presence and never abstract or detached ‘things-in-themselves’…It is precisely this phenomenology of awareness between field and event which at the same time expresses itself as a dialectic of inseparable distinctions, or what in modern science is called a non-linear field of relations. In a dialectic relation, all elements are grasped as elements of relation and never simply as elements in relation.”
From Michael Kosok’s ‘Dialectics of Nature’
a localised and point-like human ‘subject’ of awareness.
Why is a new field-phenomenological philosophy of science so essential to physics as a science? Because as Heidegger pointed out: “Physics as physics can make no assertions about physics. All the assertions of physics operate after the manner of physics. Physics is not itself the object of possible physical experiment.”

(b) as an internal boundary of its own outer background field.
