From the 26th to the 30th of January 2023, our fellow Ronny Miron and her doctoral student Shira Shemi visited the Center for the History of Women Philosophers. During their stay, Ronny Miron held a lecture on “The Contribution of Hedwig Conrad-Martius to Early Phenomenology”.
In her lecture, Miron outlined the intellectual development of the realist phemnomenologist Hedwig Conrad-Martius, her unique place among her colleagues in Göttingen, as well as the complicated relationship her ideas have with those of Husserl. Ultimately, Ronny Miron advised, it is more fruitful and also more difficult to find a common fulcrum in the phenomenology of consciousness and of reality than to dwell on doxographic differences. Conrad-Martius’ notion of reality as transcedence continues to challenge and inspire us in a world where digital and artificial realities proliferate.
