Current Research

Larger Projects:

Translation Project:  Edmund Husserl, Erste Philosophie (First Philosophy), Husserliana VII & VIII.  Trans. with T. M. Naberhaus, to appear with Springer Publishers.  A first draft of the translation is finished.  The translator's introduction will be composed in the spring of 2017.

Future Edition:  I am currently exploring the possibility of editing Wilhelm Windelband's influential essay collection Präludien, to be co-edited with Gerald Hartung (Wuppertal).

Co-Authored Book Project:  Together with Faustino Fabbianelli (Parma), I will co-author a short book entitled Varieties of Philosophical Idealism.  A proposal has been accepted by Palgrave and contract signed.

Co-Edited Handbook:  Together with Maren Wehrle (Leuven), I am editing the Metzler Handbuch Husserl - Leben - Werk - Wirkung, a handbook with some 50 entries on the life, work and reception of the founder of phenomenology.

Co-Edited Proceedings: Together with Ruth Hagengruber (Paderborn), I am editing the conference proceedings of the conference on Women Phenomenologists on Social Ontology, held at the University of Paderborn in February 2016.  This conference had two sections, invited scholars and junior scholars who responded to the call for papers.  We are editing a selection of both sections, to appear with Springer (hopefully) in 2016.

Anthology in Spanish:  I have assembled several papers on Phenomenology, Neo-Kantianism and Philosophy of Culture (mostly unpublished) that will be published in Spanish translation with Aula de Humanidades (Bogota), translated by Ricardo Mendoza Canales and Ignacio Quepons, to appear in 2017.

Philosophie Lehren:  Der Meiner Verlag (Hamburg) hat mein Buchprojekt zur philosophischen Hochschuldidaktik akzeptiert. Abgabe des Manuskripts Ende 2017.
