Millions of people sacrificed their lives and many more were injured and uprooted from their houses. There are many characteristics of the liberation war of Bangladesh, genocide being one of them. It is one of the most brutal, well-planned and widespread genocides of the 20<sup>th</sup> century since World War II. Only in a period of nine months, Pakistani army along with their local collaborators killed 3 million people. Pakistani army established its control over the entire country and continued massacre. To be sure, an atrocious genocide took place in Bangladesh. This research paper will focus upon Gopalpur genocide in the Noakhali District of Bangladesh to examine the nature and characteristics of Bangladesh genocide in 1971. On 19 August 1971, Pakistani army killed many people in Gopalpur. Besides killing, Pakistani army raped many women, set fire on many houses and looted many valuable things on that very day. Local collaborators assisted Pakistani army in accomplishing these atrocious activities. The aim of this study is to find out how and why the genocide took place in Gopalpur. It would enrich the Liberation War Studies of Bangladesh.</em></p> Susmita Dash M.

Husserl in developing phenomenology insists that its procedure has to deal only with description of its objects rather than explanations. Phenomenology only begins after the phenomenologist has carried out transcendental phenomenological reductions, starting first with eidetic reduction through which all existentialand natural attitudes are brack-eted and put out of action to yield only essences before consciousness. This is followed by phen- omenological reduction proper, which involves a complex of reductive phases Husserl, refers to as ‘epoche’ – which involves bracketing of all historical and existential judgments regarding what is ‘given’ and even the experiencer himself. What is left after the reduction is the transcendental ego with its transcendental life. It is then possible for consciousness to begin an entirely new task of interpreting the world at this level, as a coherent system constituted by itself alone. Husserl’s Phenomenological method is contrastedwith Heidegger’s phenomenological method. Heidegger strongly rejected Husserl’s bracketing of the actual world and his transcendental ego.</p> Martin Okwu Onwuegbusi, Ph.D. Copyright (c) 2019 EPH - International Journal of Humanities and Social Science (ISSN: 2208-2174) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2019-09-11 2019-09-11 5 9 10 33
