THEODORE KISIEL Date of start: October 30,1930. place of origin: Brackenridge, Pennsylvania. Date of establishment of optimum measure: PhD. , Duquesne collage, 1962. educational appointments: collage of Dayton; Canisius university; Northwestern college; Duquesne college; Northern Illinois collage. I first left the collage to pursue a occupation in metallurgical learn and nuclear know-how. yet I quickly chanced on myself drawn again to the uni­ versity to 'round out' an excessively really good schooling. It used to be alongside this course that i used to be 'waylaid' into philosophy through lecturers like H. L. Van Breda and Bernard Boelen. The philosophy division at Duquesne college was once then (1958-1962) a veritable "little Louvain," and the Belgian-Dutch connection uncovered me to (among different traveling students) Jean Ladriere and Joe Kockelmans, who planted the seeds which ultimately led me to the hybrid self-discipline of a hermeneutics of usual technology, and brought on me quickly after commencement to make the 1st of diverse prolonged visits to Belgium and Germany. The exercise to benefit French and German led me to the duty of translating the phenomenological literature bearing particularly on traditional technological know-how and on Heidegger. the debate within the sixties was once of a "continental divide" in philosophy among Europe and the Anglo-American international. yet in designing my classes within the philosophy of technology, I obviously gravitated to the works of Hanson, Kuhn, Polanyi and Toulmin with no at the start absolutely understanding why I felt this type of powerful kinship with them, past their universal anti­ positivism.

P. 148. I 2 HANS H . RUDNICK FRITZ KAUFMANN'S AESTHETICS Fritz Kaufmann belongs to the group of students whom Husserl attracted to Gottingen between 1901 and the beginning of World War I. Particularly from 1905 on, many advanced students came to Husserl from other notable philosophical centers in Germany. Adolf Reinach, Johannes Daubert, Moritz Geiger, Theodor Conrad, Dietrich von Hildebrand and Hedwig Conrad-Martius came to Husserl from Munich where Theodor Lipps and Alexander Pfander were teaching.

Farber supports Husserl's view that logical concepts must originate in intuition, and must arise through abstraction on the basis of certain experiences. " 8 Logic may be viewed from two sides: the side of the contributions of reason, of contributive activities, and also the side of MARVIN FARBER AND HUSSERL 7 that which is contributed, the results which remain. 9 It is, in Farber's view, Husserl's monumental accomplishment that logical contribution was found by Husserl to be present in all levels of experience, not only on the high level on which traditional logic begins its analysis.

But he was critical of Husserl's philosophy as a metaphysic of transcendental idealism or 'First Philosophy' which was supposed to serve as the ultimate ground for all sciences. He did not see any significant universal ontology in Husserl's phenomenology. Farber's critical view of Husserl that became so prominent in The Foundation of Phenomenology (1943) was already formed in the twenties when he was in Freiburg working under Husserl. It is interesting to note that after a number of years of study with Husserl, Farber decided not to write his dissertation under Husserl, because his position was too far apart from that of his teacher.
