A.-T. Tymieniecka, The Work of the Analecta Husserliana and Conversion
In this address—originally given to conferees at the Lateran University in November of 2006—Ryba identifies one of the causes of the success of the phenomenological movement connected with the Analecta Husserliana: membership in this movement is accompanied by a conversion (understood in the phenomenological sense). Following the ideas of Husserl, Stein, Lonergan, and Tymieniecka, Ryba explains in what sense commitment to the project of the Analecta Husserliana may be construed as a philosophic conversion. He concludes that this conversion is tantamount to the re-education of the esemplastic sense, a re-education which takes place both through a conscious understanding of Tymieniecka’s phenomenological project and though a liminal, “alchemical” transformation that the style of her philosophical writings effects in the reader’s imagination.
