By accident my current try at a survey was send to you individually instead of being posted here in the Newsletter. And somehow some messages arrived blank or with all the words crossed out. We regret this.
Before I urge everybody who did not respond yet to do so now, let me report raw some counts.
Thus far, 332 responses have come in, which is just over 10% of the whole 3,000 of us. So we need many more responses!
While printing the surveys that have come in thus far, it occurred to me to count them by sex and found 127 out of the 332, which seems high and can be attributed to gender pride I would say. The number of colleagues by nationaly includes 105 from the USA, which is not representative because there are not 1,000 phenomenologists in my country! And I found 17 from the UK and 18 from Australia, which also seem high numbers for the first 10% of responses. Could there be 180 phenomenologists in Australia (but there must be more than 18)?
Except for the raw numbers that have already come in, these results do not mean much concerning the the totality of subscribers, which includes most of the phenomenologists alive today. Help us get a more complete picture!
Also interesting are the countries of respondents thus far (eventually I will make counts by country): Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portuguese, Romania, Senegal, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tunisia, Turkey, UK, USA, and Uruguay. These are not all the countries in which there are phenomenologists! Also, it would be interesting to know how many phenomenologists there are in each country.
As for disciplines beyond philosophy, I know that there are at least 36, but thus far colleagues from only about half of the disciplines on my following list from other sources have responded: Architecture, Cognitive Science, Communicology, Counseling, Cultural Anthropology, Ecology, Economics, Education, English, Ethnic Studies, Ethnology, Ethnomethodology, Film Studies, French, Geography, Behavioral, Geography, Social, Hermeneutics, History, Linguistics, Law, Literature, Medical Anthropology, Medicine, Musicology, Nursing, Philosophy of Religion, Political Science, Psychiatry, Psychology, Psychopathology, Religious Education, Social Work, Sociology, and Theology. Again, it would be interesting to know if this list is complete and how many come from each of these disciplines.
Let me ask my five questions again
(please send your answers to Carp@fau.edu):
(1) Are you male or female?
(2) What discipline are you trained in?
(3) What language do you teach in?
(4) What is your nationality? and
(5) Are you a professor, student, or something else?
Your responses will be held in confidence.
