Publication Year: 1996
Published by: University of Ottawa Press
Dr. Mitscherling provides the first comprehensive monograph on the life and the works of a philosopher who in Germany and in his native Poland has long been known as a thinker of marked originality. Now that several of Roman Ingarden's writings have...
PREFACE AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
The present work comprises only one small part of a large body of research devoted to the exploration of the field opened up by the revision of hermeneutic ontology initiated with a paper I delivered in Graz, Austria, in 1994 entitled "Nietzsche's Rhetorical...
The basic claim of this book is twofold: (1) that we are not in a position accurately to interpret and evaluate Ingarden's studies in aesthetics until we place them within the framework provided by his realist ontological position as a whole, and (2) that, conversely...
CHAPTER ONE: A SKETCH OF INGARDEN'S LIFE, CAREER, AND WORKS1
Ingarden's life and career spanned not only one of the greatest eras of European intellectual and cultural history but also the last chapters of one of the most tragic periods of the turbulent history of Poland, much of which revolved around Krakow, the city of his...

CHAPTER SIX: INGARDEN AND CONTEMPORARY AESTHETICS
