Existential philosophy has perhaps captured the public imagination more completely than any other philosophical movement in the twentieth century. But less is known about the phenomenological method lying behind existentialism.
The central contribution of Ströker’s investigations is a careful and strict analysis of the relationship between experienced space, Euclidean space, and non-Euclidean spaces. Her study begins with the question of experienced space, inclusive of mood space, space of action and perception, of practical activities and bodily orientations, and ends with the controversies of the proponents of geometric and mathematical understanding of space.
“Those wishing to expand or clarify their understanding of space from the phenomenological perspective will find Ströker’s work useful.”

"Gebser’s noetic analysis, of Teilhardian scope, is only partially equaled by such works as Erich Neumann’s The Origins and History of Consciousness or Gaston Bachelard’s The Philosophy of No. A profound and sagaciously polemic work, remarkably relevant to discussions of holism and postmodern consciousness."
