The Munich international conference: Die Aktualität Husserls

giovedì, ottobre 15, 2009

On the occasion of Edmund Husserl’s 150th birthday in 2009 Frau Dr. Prof. Verena Mayer, chair I in philosophy of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), organized an international conference on different topics of Husserl’s Phenomenology (“Die Aktualität Husserls”). The conference took place from 8th to 10th October in the Münchner Kompetenzzentrum Ethik (MKE) in the main building of the LMU.

The focus was on Husserl’s actuality. Addressing the issues Ontology, Philosophy of Language, Action Theory, Philosophy of Mind, and Ethics, the contributors explored whether Husserlian views can be defended in the light of recent research in these fields.

The three-day conference was open for all who are interested in Husserl’s Phenomenology; each day there have been three lectures followed by a seminar in which one topic of the lectures has be discussed in more detail.

The Conference Program, as well as the relevant Husserlian texts for these seminars (directed by Peter Simons, Sonja Rinofner-Kreidl, Hennig Peucker) are available at :

The working versions of the contributed papers will be available at:

Virtually all the papers, and more specifically at least three of them (Sonja Rinofner-Kreidl on Husserl and the theory of action, Thomas Vongehr on Feeling and Will, Hennig Peucker on Husserl between Formalism and Sujectivisn in Ethics) are of direct interest for participants in the Forum about Husserls Introduction to Ethics (1920-24). Hennig Peucker is among other the editor of Husserliana Bd XXXVII, containing the Vorlesungen zur Ethik 1920-24, whose Italian partial edition is the subject of our Forum.
