My interest lies in applying the phenomenological method(s) to phenomena which escape immediate perception or in which perception always already takes place. As a first attempt, I applied Edmund Husserl’s theory of thing-perception, Martin Heidegger’s concept of region and attunement, and Günter Figal’s theory of the inconspicuous/inapparent to weather phenomena for my Master’s thesis.
