Phenomenology of Solitary Confinement, Lisa Guenther

ABC Radio’s Alone &Apart interview of a friend of the blog and advocate for the locked down and out: “When Lisa Guenther took the stand at the first-ever US Congressional hearing into solitary confinement she took her phenomenology textbooks with her. Her testimony took its cues from the classic work of Edmund Husserl and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, who both attempted to show how meaningful experiences arise through being in the world. So, what happens when that world shrinks to a 6 by 9 cell with no one in sight?”
