Simon Høffding


I am researching the phenomenology of expert musicianship, hypothesizing that deep immersion expresses changes in selfhood (ipseity) and intentionality. My research is based on interviews with classical musicians combined with analyses of phenomenologists such as Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and Henry, but also more contemporary philosophers such as Dreyfus, Kelly, Gallagher, Zahavi, and Legrand. 

Besides the chapters in my thesis, I am working on two papers. One in psychology of music on the lack of attentive interaction in performing musicians and another, co-authored with my colleague Kristian Martiny on the methodology of the phenomenological interview. I am also co-editing a special issue of Journal of Consciousness Studies on multidisciplinary approaches to the self.
