Philosophy and the Future of Europe

This issue of our journal is exceptionally multilingual in order to emphasize the value of that particular variety of national traditions which the European Union is supposed to have maintained and harmonized. We underwent the last phase of editorial processing in the middle of the most symbolic crisis that the EU has experienced since its inception: the concrete risk of the so-called “Grexit” – the Greek referendary “no” to austerity conditions imposed upon the extension of their European loan. We have witnessed the eleventh hour...

Mind, Habits and Social Reality

Mind, Habits and Social Reality

The present volume of Phenomenology and Mind is dedicated to the topic of habit, especially in its personal and social aspects. The phenomenological tradition has produced a number of interesting and fruitful reflections on habits, importantly challenging the often too sharply drawn distinction between nature and culture. The notion of habit is crucial in understanding Husserl’s phenomenology. The ante-predicative framing of types in perception and the felt movement of the lived-body, the framing of position-takings in logically,...

The Place of Values in a world of Norms

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...

Norms, Values, Society: Phenomenological and Ontological Approaches

Norms, Values, Society: Phenomenological and Ontological Approaches

“For aside from the sorts of normative demands to which secondary rules, practice rules, and constitutive rules give rise, there exist in law, politics and society other types of demands which are similarly nonconventional. Each of us believes that he has an obligation to respect other human beings; each of us believes that he has an obligation to apologize to those we might have wronged. These beliefs do not depend for their existence on any promises we have made, and neither do the associated obligations. Each of us believes,...
