Stein follows the reflections of Husserl in volume 2 of his Ideas, but in several respects adopts an independent stance of her own. Her work takes into consideration problems dealt with by philosophers of her period like Wilhelm Dilthey, Max Scheler, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. This book offers clear analyses as it delves into questions that continue to concern philosophers today. The translator is a grandniece of Edith Stein.
"If you are one of those unusual people who still think about the mystery of the human person, do take up this book."
