Intersubjectivity, Humanity, and Being
Jun 27, 2011 05:00 PM
Edith Stein applied the methods of Husserlian phenomenology in, at first, an analysis of the experience of intersubjectivity, and then following on, the constitution of the human condition as one necessarily bound with ideation and the physical, embodied yet spiritual; as being that unfolds in caring, concern, both ethical and situated in place and time.
Stein's life and her work was marked by radical departures and change; a life's work cut short by the chaotic vagaries of war and the inexplicable logic of Nazi dehumanisation.
This conference addresses all aspects of Stein's work and is structured along developmental lines with presentations from researchers dealing with her early work on empathy followed by later reflections on the condition of women, education, and Christianity.
The special Scholar’s Reading Seminar takes place over June 26-27 structured as follows (from the call for papers)...
"Finite and Eternal Being will be read by the participants, scholars presenting the various chapters and discussing the issues at stake. This seminar is intended as a working session for advanced students and scholars, at which beginners can assist."
