CALL FOR PAPERS: THE FUTURE OF HUSSERLIAN PHENOMENOLOGY
Organized by: THE HUSSERL ARCHIVES AT THE NEW SCHOOL IN MEMORY OF ALFRED SCHUTZ
The Husserl Archives at the New School for Social Research welcome submissions of brief manuscripts (approximately 2,000 words, or 5 double-spaced pages) on the future of Husserlian phenomenology. The papers will be reviewed by the Archives’ Editorial Review Committee and published on the University’s Husserl Archives website.
Deadline for submissions:
October 31, 2005.
The manuscripts should be sent electronically to Saulius Geniusas (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We encourage submissions on any aspect of Husserl’s thought which
i) Engage in the contemporary critiques of Husserlian phenomenology
ii) Address the expectations about Husserlian phenomenology articulated in contemporary philosophical debates
iii) Develop those Husserlian motifs which are supremely positioned to engage in contemporary philosophical issues
iv) Articulate the significance Husserl himself placed on the future for phenomenology.
This list of issues is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather suggestive. We welcome all papers that address the significance of the future for Husserlian phenomenology. It is our deep conviction that we, Husserl’s followers, bear the responsibility to demonstrate, perpetuate and preserve the philosophical relevance of the Husserlian legacy. We therefore need to ask whether and how Husserl’s thought is suited for the future. The central task of this Internet project is to engage in this question. Given the uncommon length of the papers, see Van Breda’s “Note on Reduction and Authenticity According to Husserl” in Husserl: Expositions and Appraisals (Ed. by F. Elliston and P. McCormick, Notre Damme U.P. 1977, p. 124-25) – an ideal example of the type of a concise manuscript we are looking for.
