This volume features fourteen essays that examine the works of key figures within the phenomenological movement in a clear and accessible way. It presents the fertile, groundbreaking, and unique aspects of phenomenological theorizing against the background of contemporary debate about social ontology and collective intentionality.

The expert contributors explore the insights of such thinkers as Martin Heidegger, Edmund Husserl, Adolf Reinach, and Max Scheler. Readers will also learn about other sources that, although almost wholly neglected by historians of philosophy, testify to the vitality of the phenomenological tradition. In addition, the contributions highlight the systematic relevance of phenomenological research by pinpointing its position on social ontology and collective intentionality within the history of philosophy.

By presenting phenomenological contributions in a scholarly yet accessible way, this volume introduces an interesting and important perspective into contemporary debate insofar as it bridges the gap between the analytical and the continental traditions in social philosophy. The volume provides readers with a deep understanding into such questions as: What does it mean to share experiences with others? What does it mean to share emotions with friends or to share intentions with partners in a joint endeavor? What are groups? What are institutional facts like money, universities, and cocktail parties? What are values and what role do values play in social reality?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Alessandro Salice and Hans Bernhard Schmid's volume offers a remarkably cohesive and informative array of essays engaging the views of various phenomenologists on the multifaceted issue of sociality. ... This volume should be mandatory reading for all those who believe that they already know the phenomenological tradition inside out, and for all those who believe that when it comes to the actual philosophical issues the phenomenological tradition is of merely historical interest." (Andrea Staiti, Notre Dame Philosophical Rerviews, ndpr.nd.edu, August, 2016)

"Volume is an excellent addition to a group of timely anthologies gathering scholarship on phenomenological approaches to the social world ... . Philosophers and phenomenologists of law are provided with a wealth of information, and historians of philosophy will find countless reasons for enthusiasm. This text as a whole accomplishes the difficult task of resonating with a wide range of topics while also maintaining its focus on conceptual overlap between early phenomenology and lively topics of twenty-first century social theory." (Sean Petranovich, Phenomenological Reviews, reviews.ophen.org, July, 2016)
