  2. Why I Cannot Dance the Tango: Reflections of an Incompetent Member of the “Milongas Porteñas”.Carlos Belvedere - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:179-200.
    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the idea that members are fully competent at what they do. With that aim, I start with a Schutzian and Ethno­methodological account of what it is like to be a member of the tango scene in the dance halls of Buenos Aires. I specify different degrees and kinds of competences. On the one hand, there are fully competent members and incompetent members. The incompetent members are the vast majority in comparison to the (...)

    Symbolic Reality Construction: A Bridge Between Phenomenological Individualism and Pragmatic Realism.Jochen Dreher - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:121-137.
    The particularly significant theory of the symbol of Alfred Schutz is based on a combination of the two perspectives of phenomenological individualism and pragmatic realism. This theory on the one hand explains processes of symbolic meaning constitution from a phenomenological viewpoint, specifically following Edmund Husserl. On the other hand it demonstrates the functioning of symbols through pragmatic social action, which is relevant for symbolic reality construction. The paper elaborates both perspectives within the Schutzian theory of the symbol with reference to (...)

  4. Schutz’ Semiotics and the Symbolic Construction of Reality.Michael M. Hanke - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:103-120.
    Some decades before Umberto Eco refounded semiotics in the sixties, Alfred Schutz had already elaborated a theory on signs and symbols. Moreover, as Schutz himself affirms, neither was he the first to do so. The thoughts of Charles Sanders Peirce had already clearly influenced American pragmatism, and thinkers like George Herbert Mead and Ernst Cassirer had developed a theory of symbols, both referred to by Schutz in his later works. Nonetheless, sign theory was already present in his first book, Der (...)

    Alfred Schutz and Aron Gurwitsch at the New School for Social Research.Benita Luckmann - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:17-35.
    This never published paper by Benita Luckmann describes the ori­gins and uniqueness of the New School for Social Research. It portrays Alfred Schutz’s arrival in the United States, his reasons for working at the New School, his exchange with Talcott Parsons, the debate over his presentation of the Stranger in the General Seminar, and his many efforts to recruit Aron Gurwitsch to the New School. It also provides an account of Gurwitsch’s experience of life in exile, his friendship with Schutz, (...)

  6. Aron Gurwitsch at the Dawn of French Phenomenology: From a Relative Invisibility to an Indelible Mark.María-Luz Pintos-Peñaranda - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:37-73.
    A network of dates, persons, activities and publications relating to the beginning of phenomenology in France is listed below, thus enabling to substantiate the direct objective of this essay: estimate how much Aron Gurwitsch contributed to the reception of phenomenology in France during the 1930s, to what extent he contributed, how and when. The indirect objective is to establish the legacy of Gurwitsch in France after he was exiled to the United States. Another objective is related tacitly with this: to (...)

    On Biography: A Schutzian Perspective.Hermílio Santos - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:163-178.
    The paper explores biographical experiences for the understanding of social phenomena, both in the writings of Alfred Schutz himself and in sociological empirical approaches based on his work. Schutz handles biography at least in two different ways: as a manner to investigate the “because” motives for one’s action and as a way to exemplify his theoretical considerations. The first step will be to discuss the biographical experience as a key aspect to understand the motivation for action. It will be argued (...)

  8. Schutz’s Contribution to a Philosophical Dialogue at the Royaumont Conference in 1957.Alfred Schutz & Marina Banchetti - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:13-15.
    This paper is a transcription and translation by Marina Banchetti of two memories of Edmund Husserl that Alfred Schutz recounted as part of a panel of philosophers discussing their memories of Husserl at Royaumont in 1957. One memory concerned Husserl lecturing in Prague without notes on the dignity of philosophy. The other had to do with Schutz ordering oranges for Husserl during his final illness.

  9. The Problem of ‘Experiencing Transcendence’ in Symbols, Everyday Language and Other Persons.Jan Straßheim - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:75-101.
    Alfred Schutz made a point which is crucial for understanding communi­cation and social coordination. Through symbols, signs or indications we experience that which transcends our experience. However, Schutz never solved the conceptual problems his claim implied. A solution is proposed through constructive criticism of Schutz. Symbols, signs and indications are based on typical expectations. In contrast, ‘experiences of transcendence’ are analyzed as experiences which deviate from typical expectations due to a tendency inherent to experience, as opposed to deviations prompted by (...)

    Outline of the Relationship Among Transcendental Phenomenology, Phenomenological Psychology, and the Sciences of Persons.Frederick J. Wertz - 2016 - Schutzian Research 8:139-162.
    Husserl focused perhaps more than any other philosopher on the relationship between philosophy and psychology. This problem was important to him because the European project of universal science must include sciences of consciousness that address questions of meaning, value and purpose so crucial for humanity. This paper provides a sketch of the later Husserl’s thinking on this issue in order to clarify the relationships among transcendental philosophy as the mother of the sciences, psychology as the foundational mental science, and the (...)
