Chapter
Nicolai Hartmann was educated at his birthplace Riga (Latvia) and at St. Petersburg (Russia), where he graduated from gymnasium in 1901, prior to his university studies in medicine at Tartu (German, Dorpat; Russian, Yuryev) in Estonia and in classical philology at St. Petersburg. When he changed fields to philosophy, he moved to the university at M...
Chapter
Husserl’s transcendental conception of the relation between time-constitution and immanent time was still very far off conceptually when he delivered the 1905 Time Lectures. The conceptual framework of his General Introduction to Pure Phenomenology 1 of 1913 maintains that the status of all mental processes (or lived experiences, Erlebnise) as occu...
Chapter
Moral value as it was understood by Nicolai Hartmann and by Max Scheler belongs uniquely to volitions or willings, to dispositions to will and to persons as beings capable of willing. Moreover, as understood in this paper as well as by Hartmann, Scheler, and Husserl, every volition necessarily involves if not actual valuings then reference to retai...

The transcendental ego is — in truth and as Husserl conceived her to be — necessarily an “entity in the world”, having otherwise no way whatsoever to be. Her being in the world and so her being at all is not absolute but is contingent upon a wide variety of conditions, especially upon having her experience occur in a way that admits of being synthe...
Chapter
The most obvious cases of ego-involvement in conscious life are those which Husserl calls conscious acts or cogitationes.2 They are the most obvious cases because they are the ones in which the ego explicitly involves himself in some way; they exhibit the character of being engaged in by the ego or having been engaged in by him. This ego-quality or...

The novel Der Prozess seems deliberately to have been written to illustrate concepts discussed among the Prague followers of Franz Brentano. What other works by Kafka can be so understood?
Project
The notes present in outline form a systematic phenomenological descriptive psychology of the basic classes of mental phenomena, showing that psychological phenomena are without exception ways in which what has been called the transcendental ego occurs.
Project
The notes show in how far Heidegger's work is phenomenological, presenting it in English terminology that is as consistent as the author has been able to make it. The notes are arranged alphabetically by entry; each entry deals with the topic whose name it bears with the corresponding German term or phrase provided. Entries usually have multiple cross references and are linked to the List of Entries.
