Research seminar on Edith Stein’s Structure of the Human Person

| 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM | Department of Philosophy, Maynooth University

Mette Lebech and Robert McNamara


The seminar plans to accomplish a close reading of Stein’s philosophical anthropology over two days. Participants present a section to the group, such that we will have been though the whole work by the end of the seminar. We will work from Robert McNamara’s draft translation of the work into English. Der Aufbau der menschlichen Person is volume 14 in the Edith Stein Gesamtausgabe.
