Reading Room Update – Walther, Fink, and Conrad-Martius

I am very pleased to announce that in our Reading Room you can now access the following three works:

Gerda Walther‘s Ein Beitrag zur Ontologie der Sozialen Gemeinschaften (1922)

Eugen Fink‘s famous Kant-Studien essay (including a foreword by Husserl), Die phänomenologische Philosophie Edmund Husserls in der gegenwärtigen Kritik (1933)
(Note: There is an English translation of Fink’s Kant-Studien essay in, The Phenomenology of Husserl: Selected Critical Readings, ed. R.O.Elveton (1970), and that already in our Reading Room you can find Friedrich Kreis‘ Phänomenologie und Kritizismus, which Fink is responding to in his essay.)

Hedwig Conrad-Martius‘ Realontologie (1923)


CFP – Describing and Exploring Early Phenomenology, NASEP 2013

The North American Society for Early Phenomenology announces their 2nd Annual Conference, Describing and Exploring Early Phenomenology, to be held at King’s University College, Western University, 12-14 June, 2013.

Keynote Speaker: Lester Embree

NASEP invites all scholars to submit abstracts on any aspect of early phenomenology. This includes all philosophical investigations into the members of the Munich and Göttingen circles, their place within the early period of phenomenology (roughly 1900-1939), their relationship to other philosophers, and their contributions to the development of early phenomenology.  The aim of this conference is to investigate the works of early phenomenologists across a broad range of topics, including ethics, mathematics, logic, aesthetics, politics, epistemology, ontology, psychology, etc.  Figures covered include, but are not limited to: Edmund Husserl, Max Scheler, Moritz Geiger, Alexander Pfänder, Adolf Reinach, Carl Stumpf, Theodor Conrad, Johannes Daubert, Dietrich Mahnke, Hans Lipps, Hedwig Conrad-Martius, Wilhelm Schapp, Edith Stein, Alexandre Koyré, Jean Hering, Winthrop Bell, Maximilian Beck, Roman Ingarden, Dietrich von Hildebrand, Fritz Kaufmann, Theodor Celms, Aron Gurwitsch, Gustav Shpet, Gerda Walther, Wolfgang Köhler, Dorion Cairns, and Eugen Fink.  We also welcome papers on the relationship between early phenomenology and the School of Brentano, Hermann Lotze, Theodor Lipps, the American Pragmatists, and the Neo-Kantians.

Senior researchers and graduate students both are welcome to submit proposals. Graduate students should indicate their status in the email with their submission. Abstracts should be prepared for blind review, and should not exceed 300 words.

Deadline for submissions: March 1st, 2013.

Please send submissions and inquiries to:
Dr. Kimberly Baltzer-Jaray
