The main goal of the book is to present a transitive-topological model of phenomenology that can describe the intertwined phenomena and explain how humans relate to them. The intertwined phenomena appear in such a way that they encompass the one to whom they appear. In this manner, they establish a complex relational structure that is characteristic of most of the human experiences at the start of the 21st century. The fundamental point of the proposed model is the interpretation of intertwined phenomenality as a specific area, and recognition of its methodological precedence. Our ability to find sense and place in complex times in necessarily linked to acceptance of complexity as the point of departure for our thinking.
The book‘s secondary goal is to present phenomenology as a philosophical discipline that thinks „scopically“, emphasizing transitivity and localisation. From this perspective, the book also suggest a methodological reflection of phenomenology that faces discussions about its naturalization, or attempts to belittle its meaning by the newly awakened speculative realism.
