Discussion 1
Chair: Dr Tim Burns
Publicizing Stein’s Work for Husserl.
How best to honour Stein’s work for Husserl – in particular on Ideas II – in light of the forthcoming publication of the manuscripts she had at her disposal?
Ying-Chien Yang, Anna Varga-Jani, Emanuele Caminada (z), Mette Lebech, Ruth Hagengruber (z), Fr Frances Payo (z), Fr Jose Conrado Estafia (z), George Heffernan (z), Valentina Gaudiano.
  1. Should Edith Stein Studies commission a companion to Stein’s ‘version’ of Ideas II or a companion to Stein’s work for Husserl?
  2. After the publication of the “new” Ideas II (the new Husserliana IV: the manuscripts Stein had at her disposal for her edition of Husserl’s Ideas II), how best to preserve Stein’s version of Ideas II as a text with a very rich Wirkungsgeschichte?
  3. What needs to be accomplished before the text of the ‘old’ Ideas II could be published in ESGA as jointly authored by Stein and Husserl (with amendments by Landgrebe)?

Discussion 2
Chair: Dr Tim Burns
Stein’s role in the debate about phenomenology and being.

Thomas Gricoski, Gaven Kerr, Anna Varga-Jani, Mette Lebech, Alessandro Salice (z), Mariele Wulf, Daniel Neumann, Daniele de Santis (z), Ian Leask (z), Fr Jose Conrado Estafia (z), Robert McNamara (z), George Heffernan (z), Jim Ruddy (z).
  1. Would it be desirable to address the topic of Phenomenology and Being in Maynooth, Ireland, in 2024 or 25?
  2. What organisations might be involved and around which themes?
  3. Could a viable concept involve a number of workshops each organized by specialists combined with plenary speakers?
