The phenomenological tradition has always entertained a complex and problematic relation with the notions of humanity, philosophical anthropology, and the human sciences. Husserl’s science of transcendental subjectivity rejects all forms of anthropologism and considers philosophy revolving around the notion of humanity as the result of the inability to overcome the natural attitude. Interpreting phenomenology as a contribution to the understanding humanity, thus, appears to fail to acknowledge that its real theme is the sense of being of the totality of the world, including but not reducible to humanity. Yet, by virtue of the phenomenological elucidation of this sense, humanity appears as the self-objectivation of transcendental subjectivity and as the necessary focal point of the life-world, i.e., of the horizon of all theoretical, practical and axiological accomplishments. In this way, phenomenology acquired from the beginning an intimate relation with the human sciences. Concepts such as humanity and humanism entertain a complex relation with Heidegger’s reflection too. On the one hand, in his confrontation with Cassirer, he insisted that the analyses contained in Being and Time cannot be considered as a contribution to a philosophical anthropology, and in the Letter of Humanism he famously rejected Sartre’s concept of humanism as metaphysical. On the other hand, Heidegger proclaimed that the “essence” of human being must be understood on the ground of its ek-sistence, whereby to be human means to be there in the clearing of being, and to be open to being through language. Authors such as Alfred Schütz, Hannah Arendt, Hans-Georg Gadamer, and Hans Blumenberg have taken up the rich legacy of these reflections in close relation to the human sciences. Furthermore, recent years have seen a renewed interest in the phenomenological approach among a number of working anthropologists and ethnologists, who, in their own empirical analyses, draw on the descriptive resources offered by Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre and Merleau-Ponty.
In a time in which various forms of post-humanism and trans-humanism exert a growing influence on our culture, we believe that the phenomenological tradition offers vital critical resources for a radical interrogation on the very notion of humanity.    
The seminars of the School will address different aspects of this broad theme. No previous background in phenomenology is required. Some advanced students will be encouraged to give a personal contribution to the School’s activities.

Die Phänomenologie hat mittlerweile eine über einhundertjährige Geschichte. Dieses Buch führt auf drei Wegen in die Vielfalt ihrer unterschiedlichen Ansätze ein. Dabei geht es dem Autor nicht nur um eine Darstellung der Geschichte der Phänomenologie. Er führt außerdem vor, wie ihr Anspruch, die Sachen selbst zu untersuchen, erfüllt wird und auch eine philosophische Strömung wie der Deutsche Idealismus phänomenologisch fruchtbar gemacht werden kann. Zudem trägt Schnell zur aktuellen Debatte um den Neuen Realismus bei. Diese Einführung referiert nicht, was Phänomenologie ist: Sie ist selbst Phänomenologie.
Alexander Schnell ist Professor für theoretische Philosophie und Phänomenologie an der Bergischen Universität Wuppertal. Er ist dort Direktor des Instituts für Transzendentalphilosophie und Phänomenologie sowie des Marc-Richir-Archivs.

By now, phenomenology is looking back upon a history spanning more than a century. This book introduces the diversity of its different approaches by applying a threefold approach. The author is not only concerned with a presentation of the history of phenomenology. He also demonstrates how its claim to examine things themselves („die Sachen selbst“) is fulfilled, and how even a philosophical movement like German idealism can be rendered fruitful when looked at from a phenomenologically informed perspective. Not least, Schnell’s book is a contribution to the current debate about New Realism. This introduction does not simply answer the question as to what is phenomenology: in its mode of discussing its subject, it is itself phenomenology.
Alexander Schnell is Professor of Theoretical Philosophy and Phenomenology at the University of Wuppertal. He is director of the Institute for Transcendental Philosophy and Phenomenology and the Marc Richir Archive.

CFP: On the History of Being – after the Black Notebooks

On the History of Being – after the Black Notebooks

Manchester, 31 May- 2 June 2019

In celebration of Volume 50 of the JBSP, the British Society for Phenomenology is running a three-day conference, examining the contribution of Heidegger’s Schwarze Hefte (Black Notebooks) to an understanding of the question of the history of being.

We invite contributors interested in presenting a 30-minute paper, followed by 15 minutes of discussion, to submit a short abstract (maximum 500 words) to
The BSP also offers 3 fee-waivers for the most promising post-graduate/ECR proposals.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is the 31st January 2019.

Following the publication of the Contributions to Philosophy, the Besinnung and the History of Being, the question of the significance of Heidegger’s later work has been widely discussed. However, the manifold difficulties raised by this Turning from the Question of the Meaning of Being to the Question of the History of Being, has led many philosophers to condemn the obscurity of these later works, particularly in contrast to the clarity of Being and Time. And yet, insofar as Heidegger’s later philosophy attempts to make our contemporary world question-worthy in an essential sense, it belongs with the most significant thought philosophy currently has to offer.

The aim of this conference is to explore the importance of the Schwarze Hefte (GA 94, 95, 96 & 97) beyond their contribution to Heidegger’s political biography. While attention has up to now focused almost exclusively on other matters, the ‘Black Notebooks’ offer new views and perspectives on Heidegger’s writings from the 1930s and 1940s, and beyond. They do so from various angles, including reflections on metaphysics, on politics as much as on the political situation of the time, on the main authors that Heidegger worked on during these years, on aesthetics, on his personal position in Germany, as well as on the works he had already published.
In other words, for anyone trying to understand, evaluate and transform Heidegger’s later thinking, to see where and how he moves beyond the parameters of the historico-transcendental tradition of the 19th century, these volumes offer immeasurable wealth and it is this wealth that this conference aims to uncover.

Contributions may also be considered for publication in a special issue of the JBSP on the same theme.
