About myself



Curriculum Vitae


Announcing the Launching of a New Book Series:  Together with Prof. Gerald Hartung (Bergische Universität Wuppertal), I will, as of late 2015, be co-editor of a new book series entitled

"New Studies in the History and Historiography of Philosophy." 

The first titles, to appear in 2015, are:

Vol. I:  From Hegel to Windelband:  Historiography of Philosophy in the 19th Century

Vol. II:  The Philosophy of Ernst Cassirer:  A Novel Assessment, ed. by SL & J Tyler Friedman

New Book:  I am happy to report that I have finally finished editing The Neo-Kantian Reader (Routledge).  I have submitted the material and the press is working hard to publish the book in May 2015.  Thanks to all who are waiting for this Reader for their patience!

New Book:  My monograph The Space of Culture.  Towards a Neo-Kantian Philosophy of Culture Following the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism (Cohen, Natorp, and Cassirer), OUP, is in press and will appear this fall.

New Book:  Together with Maren Wehrle (Leuven), I am editing a volume from Metzler Verlag (Germany), entitled "Husserl - Leben - Werk - Wirkung."  Details forthcoming.


Upcoming Talks and Conferences:

June 2015:  I will attend the Northern American Society for Early Phenomenology in Mexico City June 3-6 and will give a seminar there on transcendental phenomenology, together with Antonio Zirión, on June 6 (in English).

On June 8, I am giving a talk at Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México in Toluca, entitled "Fenomenología y Filosofía de la Cultura" (a revised and expanded version of the talk I gave last fall in Peru).

September 9-12, 2015:  I will give a talk at the bi-annual conference of the German Society for Phenomenological Research in Landau.  Topic "Phänomenologische Lebensweltwissenschaft und empirische Wissenschaften vom Leben - ein Abgleich."

October 12-15, 2015:  At the invitation of Nam-In Lee, I will spend some time at the National University of South Korea in Seoul, together with Thomas Nenon (Memphis), and give a number of talks and colloquia, all topics TBA.
