The World Phenomenology Institute that she founded and directed for
close to fifty years is deeply saddened to announce to its members and
the world philosophical community at large the recent death of
Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka on June 7, 2014. Her contributions to
phenomenological research in the form of her voluminous publications,
most importantly her four-volume Logos and Life and the
multi-volume Analecta Husserliana, and her tireless travels
throughout the world in support of Institute conferences and
publications in collaboration with a vast international cohort of
philosophers are of inestimable value and an incomparable
accomplishment. Requiescat in pace. May she rest in
Bulletin Board (11.12.12)
The cosmic dimension of life as
the crucial ramification of the ontopoietic unfolding of life.
The pioneering work of phenomenology and human positioning in the
cosmos brings out the long forgotten issues concerning cosmos and
human being. Phenomenology and the Human Positioning in the
Cosmos (Analecta Husserliana, Vols. CXIII and CXIV)
emphasizes the Life-World, Nature, and Earth. We invite you to join
us in this extraordinary new venture in approaching the cosmos. In
fact, the present day reflection throws a unique light at the cosmos
in view of scientific emphasis on the universe.
