Abstract

This work examines the relationship between Husserlian phenomenological psychology and cognitive science on the intersubjectivity. topic of This thesis advocates for and employs the method of correlating neuroscientific and phenomenological data by showing that Husserl?s account is largely parallel with the simulation theory. I claim that we should reassess our ideas about the nature and scope of phenomenological psychology, and the way that phenomenology supposedly interacts with cognitive science by challenging the facile position that phenomenology is just a study of mental states that we are aware of, thus making an important comment on the naturalisation of phenomenology.
