Johannes Daubert had started to write an essay to be included in this volume, but was unable to finish it before the volume was published. For some insight into Daubert’s unfinished essay, see Karl Schuhmann and Barry Smith, “Against Idealism: Johannes Daubert vs. Husserl’s Ideas I and Karl Schuhmann, “Johannes Dauberts Kritik der ‘Theorie des negativen Urteils’ von Adolf Reinach,” in Speech Act and Sachverhalt (1987), pp.227-238.

From The Schuhmann Files – Adolf Reinach’s Lecture ‘Platons Philosophie’ (SS 1910)

Now available in our Reading Room is a copy of Reinach’s lecture ‘Platons Philosophie‘ (1910). This copy was one Schuhmann sent to Eberhard Avé-Lallemant, dated 27.IV.86. (date handwritten at top), and was kindly sent to Kimberly by Dietrich Gottstein (stepson of Avé-Lallemant).  Also noted on the front page, the transcript was originally Alexandre Koyré’s, and can be found at the EHESS Paris (Fonds Koyré).  Enjoy!

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.

From the Schuhmann Files – Daubert- and Reinach-Chronik

The newest additions to the Reading Room come courtesy of the late Karl Schuhmann: the Daubert-Chronik and the Reinach-Chronik.
Those familiar with the Husserl-Chronik will know the value of these documents.  These documents were provided to NASEP by Barry Smith with the express wish that Schuhmann’s work would be used by scholars to further their research.  We hope that you find them useful.
So head to the Reading Room and check them out!

*Note: A version of the Daubert-Chronik is also published in Karl Schuhmann: Selected Papers on Phenomenology (2004).
