We cordially invite you to another lecture in the series “Edith Stein in dialogue”. Dr Joachim Feldes will talk about “Stein und Hering - Phänomenologie, Metaphysik und Religion im Gespräch” (Stein and Hering - Phenomenology, Metaphysics and Religion in Conversation). Among other things, the lecture will shed light on Hering's personal contacts with Stein and her commitment to the cohesion of the early phenomenological movement, especially in the debate with Heidegger. It will also be shown that J. Hering, like Edith Stein, attempted to link phenomenology with theology. Just as Stein brought Husserl into dialogue with Thomas, Hering brings phenomenology into dialogue with protestant theology. Don't miss this exciting lecture! The language of the event is German.

The lecture will take place on 21 March at 7 pm via Zoom.

Doctoral colloquium
“Edith Steins Leben und Werk”
(online event)

Screenshot 2023-09-09 alle 18.12.32.png

From 8-9 September 2023, we held our doctoral colloquium "Edith Steins Leben und Werk" (Edith Stein's Life and Work) for the third time. A total of 14 lectures were held. Our doctoral students were in Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, the USA, Spain, France, China and Germany, among others. This year we had the great pleasure of listening to very interesting lectures, including on Edith Stein's concept of truth, her Christian philosophy and her theory of mystical realisation. We also heard lectures on: Edith Stein and Edmund Husserl, Edith Stein and Martin Heidegger or Edith Stein and Gertrud von Le Fort and were able to learn more about the application of Edith Stein's theory of women, her phenomenological psychology and her anthropology to current debates. These lectures led to exciting discussions. We also hope that our virtual exchange will lead to many new academic contacts between the doctoral students and perhaps to joint projects.

 

Thank you very much for these exciting and very fascinating presentations and discussions. We would also like to thank our audience who followed us on Zoom and Facebook.

We will publish the first recordings soon!

We had a very nice visit from Chile at the beginning of July. The director of the Centro UC en Estudios Interdisciplinarios en Edith Stein Dr Cristián Núñez Durán visited us to talk about the cooperation between our archive and the centre in Chile in terms of scientific exchange and the scientific offer of both institutions. We hope that you will soon be able to see the fruits of this co-operation. We would like to thank Dr Cristián Núñez Durán for his visit and hope to welcome him back soon.
