Phenomena


Events or things as they are perceivable. This question of the world, and the perception of the world, is of course a main preoccupation for many schools of philosophy, not least phenomenology. Karen Barad (see intra-action) offers a performative account of pedagogy and perception in their readings of quantum physics:

“our knowledge-making practices... are material enactments that contribute to, and are a part of, the phenomena we describe.”
Karen Barad, Meeting the Universe Halfway, 2007.
