Else Voigtländer: Self, Emotion, and Sociality (2023)

I contributed the chapter “Else Voigtländer’s Thoughts on Psychoanalysis” to this book, released by Springer in January 2023. It was a fascinating experience and a privilege to be a member of this project headed by Íngrid Vendrell Ferran, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Marburg, and to write about Voigtländer’s psychoanalytic contributions between 1911 and 1928. Working on it meant traveling back in time as well as exploring new territory.

Publisher’s description: “This book is the first to offer a full account of the philosophical work of Else Voigtländer. Locating the sources of her thought in the philosophy and psychology of the nineteenth and twentieth19th and 20th centuries in figures such as Nietzsche and Lipps, the volume book uncovers and examines Voigtländer’s intellectual exchanges with both phenomenology and psychoanalysis. The major themes within her work are considered in 12 expertly written chapters that also cover more recent developments in the philosophy of self, emotion, and sociality. The book appeals to scholars who are interested in the history of philosophy, and in particular of phenomenology, as well as those working on the philosophical roots of psychology and in women’s studies.”

It is part XVII of the series “Women in the History of Philosophy and Sciences” which is being published at Springer in association with the Center for the History of Women Philosohers and Scientists. The volume is edited by Íngrid Vendrell Ferran and includes contributions by Philipp Schmidt, Thomas Barth, Genki Uemura, Toru Yaegashi, Alessandro Salice, Hilge Landweer, Guillaume Fréchette, Ute Gahlings, Sophie Loidolt, Petra Gehring and George Heffernan.
