heterophenomenology (heterophenomenologies)

    • 1993 Daniel Dennett Consciousness and Cognition, vol. 2, no. 1
      I go to some lengths in my book to explain that heterophenomenology is nothing other than the scientific method applied to the phenomena of consciousness, and thus the way to save the rich phenomenology of consciousness for scientific study. I didn't invent the heterophenomenological method; I just codified, more self-consciously and carefully than before, the ground rules already tacitly endorsed by the leading researchers.
