The history of the Husserl archives established in memory of Alfred Schutz at the New school for social research

Michela Beatrice Ferri

pp. 227-238

Abstract

The chapter exposes an accurate analysis of the steps that brought to the presence, in North America, of archives dedicated to the writings of Edmund Husserl. The account runs from an early project for a first center in Buffalo, to the birth of centers dedicated to Phenomenology. The first surviving United States of America branch of the Husserl Archives in Leuven was created at the New School for Social Research, while in the mid-1980s a second collection center of copies of the transcriptions of Husserl's manuscripts – the Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center – was created at Duquesne University. In specific, this chapter restitutes the history of the creation of the "Husserl Archives Established in Memory of Alfred Schutz" at the New School for Social Research in New York.
