Austrian Society of Phenomenology
The Austrian Society of Phenomenology focuses on phenomenology and is interested in the cooperation with psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, sociologists and pedagogues. One of the topics is the reciprocal relationship between phenomenology and hermeneutics. Since 2009 Sonja Rinofner-Kreidl has chaired the society, Harald A. Wiltsche has been general secretary, and Eva Schwarz treasurer. By means of regular publications and the organization of symposia phenomenological research is to be stimulated and strengthened. In the autumn of 2009 Steven Crowell (Rice University, USA) gave a lecture at a symposium that was organized by the society.
