This essay was read by Wild at the Annual Meeting of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association held in Philadelphia on December 27–29, 1966. In my Wild file, I had a carbon copy of the essay he sent to me since he knew that I would be interested in what he had to say. I retyped it with a carbon copy because I wanted to preserve his original copy.
In their The Promise of Phenomenology (2006: 269), Sugarman and Duncan mention that Wild “almost certainly” had given an undergraduate course on “Marxism and Existentialism” in the fall of 1966 when I began my post-doctoral fellowship in philosophy at Yale with the intention of studying phenomenology in earnest with Wild. I wonder if they tried to check with the Yale registrar’s office to make this fact certain. In the fall of 1966, I remember sitting only in his seminar on “Freedom and Responsibility” where I read Wild’s book Existence and the World of Freedom (1963) with utmost care.
