The Mind of Max Scheler: The First Comprehensive Guide Based on the Complete Works

By Manfred S. Frings | Go to book overview

PREFACE
This book has been written with two purposes in mind:
1) It fills a long-standing gap in contemporary philosophical literature in that it provides a first comprehensive look in the philosophy of Max Scheler ( 1874- 1928) as it appears in the original text of the recently completed German Collected Edition ( Gesammelte Werke), consisting of fifteen volumes. The book is based, therefore, exclusively on the German originals and respective manuscripts.
(2) The book is meant to address a) specialists who are provided with a web of cross-references pertinent to the above Edition and to English translations whenever they are available. The book is meant to address b) beginners to Scheler studies, the number of which has grown considerably of late, both home and abroad.

Our work here is the result of almost three decades of investigation into the mind of Max Scheler as manifest in his Collected Works and thousands of posthumous manuscript-pages that I have been studying: not only to bring to light the unity of his thought but also to show his familiarity with a vast literature, including that which lies outside the strictly philosophical. During the process of creating the present text, it inadvertently became clear to me that it is for the benefit of the reader that references to secondary literature, and the arguments, comments and contentions that accompany it, should not becloud an already challenging text.

By proceeding in this fashion, I hope to have succeeded in opening a clear view of an entire, rather complex, system of thought of early twentieth century philosophy that has remained in the background of investigations made by such thinkers as Heidegger, Husserl, Levinas, Merleau-Ponty, Nietzsche, Russell, Sartre, Wittgenstein and others no less important than the ones just mentioned.

The author wishes, therefore, to apologize that the names of many of his colleagues and the titles of secondary literature do not appear in the text. Instead, he has chosen to add a selected list of recent secondary literature for the reader's convenience. Collegial thanks are extended here to all of these authors and many more for what I have learned from their own studies.

As we approach the dawn of a third millennium--leaving behind us centuries marked among others by evils of war, starvation, social upheavals, waning of faith and a holocaust, but also marked by the realization of the highest values of art, culture and inventions that
