Christopher Macann (born March 3, 1941) is a philosopher who has devoted his life to the further development of the phenomenological position advanced by Martin Heidegger in Being and Time. Rather than accepting the conventional view that the two main forms of phenomenological philosophy...transcendental and ontological...are intellectually opposed, Macann conceives of them as stages in the ‘genesis’, or coming into being, of human consciousness. The logic of this genesis is comprehensively explored in Macann's four-volume Being and Becoming (2007), which employs a Hegelian approach to integrate transcendental with ontological phenomenology...and to integrate phenomenology more generally with analytic philosophy. The aim of Macann's programme is nothing less than to resolve the key dichotomies of contemporary philosophy, and to begin the task of reconciling Western intellectual traditions with the basic tenets of Eastern philosophy.
