Together with Springer, the Center for the History of Women Philosophers publishes a Series on Women in the History of Philosophy. Recently Rodney Parker, former coordinator of the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists directed by Ruth E. Hagengruber, and creator of the phenomenology archive at the Center published a new book on Hedwig Conrad-Martius. Rodney Parker was a post-doc in the Center’s project on Women in Early Phenomenology. He is a specialist on the history of the phenomenological movement. Ronny Miron (Bar-Ilan University) is an advisor for the Women in Early Phenomenology research cluster, and is a specialist on the philosophy of Hedwig Conrad-Martius. Here you can watch an interview with Rodney Parker on Hedwig Conrad Martius.
Rodney K. B. Parker published Hedwig Conrad-Martius’ Ontological Phenomenology in 2020. The volume is an introduction to the totality of the metaphysical philosophy of nature of Hedwig Conrad-Martius (1888-1966). Her own training and inclination as a realist phenomenologist enables a unique perspective on central issues in modern and contemporary (twentieth century) theoretical biology and physics. Here we find novel theories of, e.g., space and time, as well as development and evolution. This work is thus of interest to anyone studying the history of the phenomenological movement as well as religious cosmology. You can now find a book review by our research fellow Antonio Calcagno on Rodney Parkers book.
