Excerpt

The translations ofBrentano andMeinong and the second translation of Husserl ("Phenomenology and Anthropology") have not previously been published. The selections from Brentano were translated byD. B. Terrell, of the University of Minnesota, and are taken, with his kind permission, from his translation of Brentano Psychologie vom empirischen Standpunkt. Meinong "The Theory of Objects" was translated byIsaac Levi, of Western Reserve University,D. B. Terrell, andRoderick M. Chisholm.Husserl "Phenomenology" was translated byC. V. Salmon, of Belfast University; his "Phenomenology and Anthropology" byRichard Schmitt, of Brown University.

I wish to express my thanks to all translators; toDr. Hofrat Rudolf Kindinger , of Graz, for his valuable help in connection with Meinong; to ProfessorKonstantin Radacović for his kind cooperation at the University of Graz; to ProfessorD. B. Terrell, for his suggestions concerningBrentano; to ProfessorsMarvin Farber and Richard Schmitt for their criticisms of an early version of my introductory remarks onHusserl; to the publishers who have permitted use of the selections included here; to the editor of the Revista de Filosofia de la Universidad de Costa Rica for permitting me to include in the Introduction certain parts of my article, La Teoría del Objeto de Meinong; and to the editor and publisher of this series for their patience and co-operation.

It should be noted that this book is not concerned with scholastic philosophy, much of which is a form of realism, and that it is concerned only incidentally with moral philosophy and logic.
