*Although our focus will be on learning Sartre’s methods, along with other phenomenological methods as stated, let’s all prepare to bring one clinical case or social encounter that you are willing to share within regular guidelines of confidentiality.  For any personal or professional case studies in which we engage, we will apply the phenomenological method, thereby showing the dialectical tension with the natural attitude.
