In phenomenology, theories of empathy are intimately connected with the question of how it is possible to have insight into the mind of the other person. In this article, the author wants to show why it is self-evident for us that the other person is having experiences. In order to do so, it is not enough to discuss the phenomenon of empathy with a starting point in the already constituted adult person; instead the article presents a genetic approach to human development. The author thus contrasts Edith Stein's discussion of Einfühlung (empathy), which takes its starting point in the experience of the grown-up, with Max Scheler's discussion of Einsfühlung (feeling of oneness), where the relation between mother and infant is taken as one example. Maurice Merleau-Ponty's discussion of the world of the infant is read as one way of developing Scheler's theory of intersubjectivity and of Einsfühlung. This genetic approach is developed further into a phenomenological analysis of the experience of the fetus and of birth. The author argues that the analysis of the fetus highlights the distinction between knowing that another person is having experiences, and knowing the specific content of the other person's experiences. The fetus does not experience different persons, but has a pre-subjective experience of life that includes what is later experienced as belonging to "another." Later in life, the experience of empathy, as an experience of a specific content, can be developed from this experience. In this way empathy and Einsfühlung can be understood as complementary rather than as competing phenomena.

The distinction between the secular and the sacred or holy seems at first to constitute a definitive line, the establishment of which also defines Western modernity. Yet this apparently strict demarcation is today not only questioned, but also increasingly difficult to maintain. In order to understand and conceptualize what is happening in the intersection between religion, politics, and aesthetics, we need to rethink the very meaning of the sacred in its full ambiguity, to explore again in thinking the vicissitudes and possibilities of this complex phenomenon, and to learn to move more freely through the category itself.The book contains contributions by researchers from many different fields, philosophers, theologians, political scientists, and literary historians, who also comment on each other. It establishes new connections and trajectories for mapping and understanding the nature and meaning of the sacred both as a social, an aesthetic, and a religious phenomenon.

Eros manifests itself in multiple ways: as tragic eros and philosophical eros, as love, sexuality, seduction, care, desire, and friendship. Eros both defines us as beings and dislocates our existence. It breaks down our certitudes about selfhood and otherness, familiarity and strangeness. This volume gathers together contributions toward a phenomenological understanding of eros. The first part examines eros in relation to ancient philosophy and religion, the second part examines eros in relation to modern phenomenology. The analyses presented show how the question of eros brings us to the core of philosophy. Questions of time, desire, embodiment, intersubjectivity, and perception are all implicated in the phenomenology of eros.

Att i galopp flyga fram över ängen, att med svettpärlorna droppandes i pannan med gemensamma krafter få timmerlasset över sjön eller att som 8-åring för första gången få upp hästens hov och kratsa den med en splitterny hovkrats – detta är bara några bilder av det mångfacetterade kunskapsfältet mellan människa och häst som undersöks i antologin Kentauren. Om interaktion mellan häst och människa.Den här boken beskriver och analyserar den praktiska kunskapen mellan häst och människa i ett humanistiskt och tolkande perspektiv. I de olika bidragen får vi möta ridlärarens, filosofens, idéhistorikerns, mimarens, etnobiologens, häst-dressörens och terapeutens berättelser om vad det är som händer i interaktionen mellan häst och människa och hur denna kan begreppsliggöras.

The last two decades have witnessed a rising interest from philosophers in the phenomenological, hermeneutic, and continental tradition in questions concerning religion, religious experience, and the relation between faith and reason. The essays in this volume, written by philosophers, theologians, and religious scholars engage in a dialogue concerning these new frontiers. They retrace the earliest roots of phenomenological reflection on religion in the work of Husserl, Heidegger, and Stein, and they address contemporary debates, not least the much discussed "theological turn" in phenomenology, in the work of Marion, Derrida, and Henry. Among the themes treated are transcendence and immanence, immensity, prayer, and the messianic. The essays trace new paths and open up questions of relevance for all those interested in what it means to think religion from a philosophical position today.Jonna Bornemark holds a PhD in philosophy and is a lecturer and researcher at Södertörn UniversityHans Ruin is professor in philosophy at Södertörn University

The limit between the proper and the foreign – how this limit is established, but also crossed and dissolved – has remained a crucial issue in phenomenology. Setting these questions in the context of the phenomenology of religion, this thesis develops an analysis of the relation between transcendence and body understood in terms of a certain limit. The introductory part is rooted in Edmund Husserl’s discussions of the concept of transcendence, which is shown to have an essential connection to the analysis of inner time-consciousness. Here we encounter a decisive limit to objectifying knowledge, which also comes across in his investigations of the body and its spatiality.The second part discusses Max Scheler’s critique of Husserl’s excessively objectifying view of knowledge, with a particular focus on Scheler’s understanding of love as a condition of possibility for any knowledge. Scheler is shown to have developed a new concept of transcendence that avoids the pitfalls of objectivism, although in his philosophy of religion he tends to downplay the importance of the body.The third part undertakes a reading of Edith Stein, who develops ideas similar to Scheler’s, though in a phenomenologically more nuanced fashion. Although her philosophy of religion also bypasses the body, Stein provides a more genuine access to the writings of the mystics, the analysis of which forms the core of the fourth and concluding part. Drawing on the work of the 13th century Beguine Mechthild of Magdeburg, this concluding chapter develops a phenomenological understanding of religion with an emphasis on transcendence and limit, while also retaining the centrality of our experience of the body. This means: a phenomenology of the limit is investigated, rather than a limit of phenomenology.

Inom den moderna hermeneutiska filosofin har begreppet bildning fått en ny och kritisk aktualitet. Det betecknar inte längre bara besittningen av ett kulturarv utan handlar mer om att tänka den process varigenom en individ formas i mötet med det främmande. I bildningsprocessen träder människan ut ur det egna och utsätter sig för det nyas prövning. Därigenom blir också det egna främmandegjort. Genom mötet med det allmänna formas i bildningsprocessen en unik individ och person. Det filosofiska begreppet »person« är intimt länkat till bildningstanken. Begreppen »person« och »bildning« är båda också mötesplatser för filosofi och teologi, eftersom bildning ursprungligen förknippades med att formas till Guds avbild. I åtta nyskrivna bidrag belyser bokens författare hur frågan om bildning och person formulerats hos bland andra Kant, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche och Heidegger, och pekar vidare mot vad ett kritiskt bildningsbegrepp kan betyda i dag.
