The Place of Values in a world of Norms

The papers collected in this number of Phenomenology and Mind aim at analyzing Max Scheler’s work and understanding to what extent his reflection can be useful to current debates – in particular as far as values, emotions, and norms are concerned.
Max Ferdinand Scheler (Munich, 1874 – Frankfurt, 1928) was one of the most prolific German intellectuals of his time and a pioneer in phenomenology. The first encounter with phenomenology happened in 1902, when Scheler met Edmund Husserl. In Munich, where he came back in 1906 after he completed his studies in Berlin and Jena, he established, together with Theodor Lipps, the circle of the “Munich Phenomenologists”. Some of the members of this group were: Maximillian Beck, Theodor Conrad, Moritz Geiger, Dietrich von Hildebrand, Herbert Leyendecker, Hedwig Martius, and Alexander Pfänder.
