Phenomenological accounts of sociality in Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Scheler, Schutz, 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). Specifically, the book pursues three interrelated objectives: it aims 1.) to systematically explore the key phenomenological aspects of social reality; 2.) to offer novel, state-of-the-art assessments of both central and lesser-known proponents of the phenomenology of sociality (Gurwitsch, Loewith, von Hildebrand, or Walther), and 3.) to contextualize this elaborate body of work in light of contemporary social cognition research, the growing literature in analytic social ontology, and current trends in moral psychology, moral phenomenology, and social and political philosophy. 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. It will be essential reading for those studying phenomenological accounts of intersubjectivity, empathy, and community, including analytic, social, moral and political philosophers, and will also be of interest for social scientists and social psychologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume is thus a rather adventurous and truly inspiring journey through a wide variety of topics and views, with just enough salient landmarks ... never to lose one's orientation along the many ways." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"(...) PoS is a rich work that has the potential to enliven existing debates and generate new ones concerning the nature of social cognition, empathy, shared affects, group formation, etc." - Journal of Social Ontology

"Phenomenology of Sociality is an excellent resource for graduate students and professional academics interested in learning more about phenomenology's engagement with the social and how phenomenology can make a positive contribution to current debates in social ontology, social cognition, collective intentionality, and philosophy of the emotions." - Timothy A. Burns in Husserl Studies

"Szanto's and Moran's volume is a veritable treasure trove that amply documents the fertility and richness of the phenomenological tradition. Containing contributions on both familiar and lesser well known phenomenologists, Phenomenology of Sociality is mandatory reading for anybody working on sociality and collective intentionality." - Dan Zahavi, Professor of Philosophy, University of Copenhagen

"This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the phenomenological foundations of the social mind and our experience of living together in a common world of the `We'. It brings together eminent scholars and talented young researchers to evaluate the relevance of a phenomenological theory of sociality in contemporary philosophical and interdisciplinary discussions, thereby revitalizing lesser-known voices from the tradition as well as exploring new directions of phenomenological research." - Thiemo Breyer, University of Cologne

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