This is my case for including ordinary people in national history throught an emerging genre of history known as the ‘new history from below’.

О, мы знаем, их – множество, если рассматривать в совокупности историю различных государств, стран и народов.

A look at false consciousness as having either positive or negative ends depending on what one wishes to do with it. Focus is the creative potential of false premise and false logic. Overall the idea came to mind of "looking for rain in a cloud" such that many academics purport clarity yet rather like following the raindrops up and gazing into the sky they become drawn into the cloud.

I really love the succinct way you write about living positively regardless of the circumstances of your life. Believing in the new age prosperity thinking (along with some bad luck) led me down a bigtime abyss of depression to the point of contemplating suicide. Thankfully that is behind me now. I made a mistake, and now truly value the power of realism and living positively. -- Kathy

現象学は、従来にない豊かな可能性を哲学にもたらした。現象学的に根拠を問う時、人は、現象の相関項としての超越論的主観の存在を自覚する。しかし、学の基礎付けはそれで十分なのだろうか。本書は、第一章でエトムント・フッサールの現象学的哲学を、第二章ではマックス・シェーラーの現象学的倫理学を批判的に検討しつつ、第三章で、現象学的還元・構成・破壊をモデルにした目的論的還元・構成・破壊による、現象学、とりわけ実質的価値倫理学の超越論的基礎付けを試みる。
