John Wild and Phenomenology

  • James M. Edie
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 26)


John Wild, who was born on April 10, 1902, in Chicago, where he received his early education in philosophy at the University of Chicago, and then after a Master of Arts degree from Harvard University, returned to the University of Chicago for his doctoral study which he completed in 1926, was always a maverick in philosophy. Apart from a brief period at the University of Michigan most of his university life was spent in the faculty of philosophy at Harvard University, until he came to Northwestern in 1961, and then left for Yale almost immediately thereafter in 1963.
