Stein’s and Husserl’s Intertwined Itineraries 1916-25

Conference | all-day | Ruth Hagengruber, Mette Lebech

Edith Stein attempted already in her doctorate to complement Husserl’s work on phenomenology by a painstaking analysis of empathy including its indispensable role in the constitution of the psycho-physical individual and the person. As Husserl’s assistant 1918-20 she famously edited in particular his Ideas II, perhaps introducing within it a view of this relationship foreign to Husserl’s. This conference attempts to shed light on this matter by bringing into focus the integrity and coherence of their respective contributions in advance of the appearance of the new and revised edition of Ideas II. The The focus of this conference and its theme are on Husserl and Stein’s respective understanding of the constitution of the body, and its importance for intersubjectivity and transcendental phenomenology.
