eng 2022-05-18T15:13:53Z The Phenomenological Foundations of Ethnomethodology’s Conceptions of Sequentiality and Indexicality : Harold Garfinkel’s References to Aron Gurwitsch’s "Field of Consciousness" Meyer, Christian Meyer, Christian terms-of-use 2022 2022-05-18T15:13:53Z Some of the opaquest and cloudiest passages and formulations in Garfinkel’s writings directly refer to Aron Gurwitsch’s gestaltist phenomenology. In this text I will clarify the borrowings and intentional misreadings of Gurwitsch’s philosophy by Garfinkel drawing on the topic of sequentiality and endogenously unfolding indexicality. These borrowings and intentional misreadings have been overlooked for a long time, but materials from the Garfinkel Archive now allow us to reconstruct them in more detail.<br />In doing so, this text at the same time provides an introduction to the many references in the work of Garfinkel to Gurwitsch. The paper offers a treatment of Gestalt contexture and its details, theme, and thematic field, discusses how time and temporality matter, and explains how Garfinkel has been using and taking inspiration from the work of Gurwitsch. It does so also by reference to some unpublished materials in the Garfinkel archive. Furthermore, the text refers to some other sources of inspiration for Garfinkel, like Hubert Dreyfus and Maurice Merleau- Ponty. Finally, it offers reflections on the theoretical foundations on which empirical strands of ethnomethodology such as Conversation Analysis and Membership Categorization Analysis are based as well as methodological considerations of video-based interaction research.
