    Husserl
    Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 35 (3): 435-436. 1975.
  • In 2000 and 2001 many conferences were held to commemorate the centenary of Logical Investigations. In addition to these festive observances, a number of new publications of Husserl’s work related to the Investigations are appearing. The two volumes under review belong to that category. They are the texts of two courses Husserl gave concurrently in the winter semester of 1902–03 at Göttingen, where he had begun to teach in 1901–02. In his first year he gave a course on logic and the theory of kn…Read more

    Ancient and Medieval Theories of Intentionality (review)
    Review of Metaphysics 56 (2): 446-449. 2002.
    This volume of fifteen essays plus an introduction and preface is the outcome of a conference organized by Dominik Perler at Basel in June 1999. The topic is obviously interesting and important. Intentionality has been the hallmark issue of phenomenology for over a century, and it is common knowledge that the name and concept were introduced by Franz Brentano, who said he was reviving a medieval idea that had deeper roots in antiquity. The topic has also entered into analytic philosophy through …Read more

    Honor, Anger, and Belittlement in Aristotle’s Ethics
    Studia Gilsoniana 3 221-240. 2014.
    The author considers the phenomenon of honor by examining Aristotle’s description of it and its role in ethical and political life. His study of honor leads him to two related phenomena, anger and belittlement or contempt ; examining them helps him define honor more precisely. With his examination of honor the author shows how densely interwoven Aristotle’s ethical theory is; he illuminates such diverse things as the human good, political life and friendship, virtue, vice, incontinence, flattery…Read more

    Husserl: Shorter Works
    Review of Metaphysics 36 (2): 459-460. 1982.
    This is an intelligent and useful collection of works by Husserl. The editors have assembled twenty-one short works; some appeared first as essays, some are manuscripts, some are letters, some are extracts from larger works. Most important, they cover a wide range of topics and thus make up a rather colorful collection. Five are brief "introductions" to phenomenology: Husserl's inaugural lecture at Freiburg ; his introduction to the English edition of Ideas ; his Encyclopedia Britannica article …Read more

    The Theory of Will in Classical Antiquity
    Review of Metaphysics 37 (3): 624-626. 1984.
    Albrecht Dihle is professor of classics at Heidelberg. This book is a development of the Sather Classical Lectures given at Berkeley in 1974. It is an important and informative work, rich in detail, clear in argument, and filled with erudition. Dihle begins by contrasting the Hellenistic philosophical understanding of nature with the Jewish religious understanding of the cosmos. The pagan philosophers saw nature and the world as an ordered whole and sought to conform their minds and their lives …Read more

    Einleitung in die Logik und Erkenntnistheorie
    Review of Metaphysics 40 (4): 779-781. 1987.
    This book is the edition of a course given by Husserl in the Winter Semester of 1906-07 at Goettingen. The volume contains a long and informative introduction by the editor, the course itself, which extends for 355 pages, two sets of supplementary texts, which extend for almost 100 pages, and textual-critical remarks and tables of contents. The materials are not dramatically new, but they do shed light on Husserl's development and on the meaning of his teachings in Ideas I and in his well-known …Read more

    Structuralism and Hermeneutics
    Review of Metaphysics 37 (2): 422-423. 1983.
    T. K. Seung criticizes the structuralist program of trying to discover the formal elements underlying language, thinking, and social structures. He also criticizes the post-structural doctrine of writers like Derrida and De Man who renounce the quest for structure and assert the absence of univocity, pattern, presence, and identity in language, thinking, and social behavior.

    The first volume of Husserl's Ideen was published in 1913. Until then Husserl was known as the author of Logical Investigations, which had been published in 1900-1901 and which had generated a philosophical movement after its own image: one marked by anti-psychologism, by a detailed analysis of the phenomena of consciousness, by an interest in logic, by a kind of common-sense realism. The developments in Goettingen and Munich were examples of the influence of Husserl's early work. But the appear…Read more

    One of the major points in Husserl's philosophy is his insistence that consciousness is structured. He denies that consciousness is simply an undifferentiated awareness and that all the differences occur in the content or object of consciousness. He claims that consciousness itself is articulated; it has parts ordered into different kinds of wholes. The most vivid examples of this articulation are found in "representational" forms of consciousness such as remembering or imaging an experience. Le…Read more

    Die Verwicklungen im Denken Wittgensteins
    Review of Metaphysics 38 (2): 408-411. 1984.
    The title of this book speaks of the "entanglements" in Wittgenstein's thought. The author claims that most of Wittgenstein's later philosophical criticisms are really criticisms not of philosophical discourse as such but only of his own earlier conception of philosophy as expressed in the Tractatus. In particular she claims that the classical Kantian transcendental philosophy escapes Wittgensteinian criticism; indeed Wittgenstein's own early philosophy, far from being a kind of transcendental p…Read more

    with What Is Moral Action
    The Monist 72 (1). 1989.
  •  28
    I will survey a number of ways in which presence and absence are described in Husserl’s philosophy. Some of them appear in the Logical Investigations, Husserl’s first major philosophical work, and they provide the stimulus and motif that later develop into his full phenomenology. In the Investigations Husserl examines signs, images, words, and perceptions, and in each of these a special play of presence and absence takes place.
