New book - The Phenomenlogy of Sociality: Discovering the We

Thomas Szanto, Center for Subjectivity Research, has co-edited a new book on the phenomenology of sociality with professor Dermot Moran.

"A groundbreaking collection of fresh insights into the nature of the social self." – James Mensch, Charles University, Prague.

Phenomenological accounts of sociality in Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Scheler, Schütz, Stein and many others offer powerful lines of arguments to recast current, predominantly analytic, discussions on collective intentionality and social cognition. Against this background, the aim of this volume is to reevaluate, critically and in contemporary terms, the rich phenomenological resources regarding social reality: the interpersonal, collective and communal aspects of the life-world (Lebenswelt).The collection brings together original articles by a host of prominent scholars and upcoming young talents to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the topic.
