About myself



Curriculum Vitae



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

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

So far, three volumes have appeared:

Vol. I:  From Hegel to Windelband:  Historiography of Philosophy in the 19th Century, ed. by G. Hartung;

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

Vol. III: Reading Between the Lines:  Leo Strauss and the History of Early Modern Philosophy, ed. by W. Schröder.

If you have a manuscript that you could imagine fitting into this series, please contact Prof. Hartung or me.

New Book:  Together with Maren Wehrle (Leuven), I am editing a volume from Metzler Verlag (Germany), entitled "Husserl - Leben - Werk - Wirkung."  The book is to appear in the fall of 2017.

New Book:  Together with Ruth Hagengruber (Paderborn), I am currently editing the conference proceedings of the conference on Women Phenomenologists on Social Ontology; it is to appear with Springer in early 2017.


Upcoming Talks and Conferences:

Talks this Year (2017) are planned at Lexington (March 21), Bonn (June 1), Augsburg (June 7), and Leuven (June 16).

March 31-April 1, 2017:  I am organizing a conference (in conjunction with the Loyola-Marquette Phenomenology Research Group), sponsored by the American Friends of Humboldt Foundation, entitled "Current Debates in Phenomenology and Overcoming the Continental-Analytic Divide."  Speakers will be:  James Dodd (New School), Paul Livingston (New Mexico), and myself, in conjunction with graduate students from Loyola and Marquette working on theses in phenomenology.
