I got a question from today’s lecture, and tried to answer them by myself, however, I don’t know if my understanding is correct or not, and hope someone, for example Jeff could help ^_^
If connotation associates with emotional things and is “subjective”, what is the relationship between connotation and “horizons” in phenomenology? They both related or shaped by individual’s personal knowledge, feelings and experiences, aren’t they?
My answer to this question is that:
Because phenomenology is trying to understand the sender’s intention, so therefore the message sender’s horizon and life world is more important, if we share horizons with the sender, we could understand her piecework. In structuralism, the connotation shaped by the receivers’ horizons. Correct?
