The purpose of this book is to highlight Carl Stumpf's contributions to
philosophy and to assess some of the aspects of his work. This book
brings together several specialists of Stumpf and the school of Franz
Brentano, and includes fourteen original studies (in English and German)
on the various aspects of Stumpf's philosophy, and some of his
unpublished writings. This book is divided into four sections, and also
includes a general introduction on the reception and actuality of
Stumpf's philosophy. The first section examines the historical sources
of his philosophy, the second examines some of the central themes of
his work and the third examines his relationship to other philosophers.
The fourth section consists of notes taken by Husserl during Stumpf's
lectures on metaphysics in Halle, Stumpf's introduction to the edition
of his correspondence with Brentano, which he prepared in 1929, and
some important letters pertaining to this correspondence. This book
also provides a comprehensive bibliography of Stumpf's works.
