Research Description
In the past years, my research focused on the scientific and philosophical debates raised by the birth of the ³new psychology² in Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. I was interested in the discussions on sensory perception, which gave birth not only to phenomenology but also to Gestalt psychology in its various ramifications. Part of that research recently led to the publication of several papers on various aspects of these philosophical debates and of two books on the school of Brentano. My current research interests (funded by SSHRC) focus more specifically on the philosophical contribution of Franz Brentano and his students to these debates. Part of this research project focuses on Brentano's Nachlaß, which provides a substantial supplement to philosophical questions which are not addressed in Brentano's works published during his lifetime. These include issues relating to aesthetic, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, ontology, etc.., which are dealt with in extenso in his correspondence with his students and many other German and Austrian philosophers. One of the main goals of this research is to prepare an intellectual biography of Brentano based on his Nachlaß and his rich correspondence. The other aspect of this research is to clarify some aspects of his philosophical program and to evaluate its contribution to the history of Austrian and German philosophy in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
