Structure and Diversity : Studies in the Phenomenological Philosophy of Max Scheler (Phaenomenologica, Vol 141)Structure and Diversity : Studies in the Phenomenological Philosophy of Max Scheler (Phaenomenologica, Vol 141) by  Eugene Kelly

This book explores some foundational concepts of Scheler's phenomenological philosophy. Seldom or inadequately explored features of his thought, such as the concept of essence, the notion of fate and milieu as foundational of the human person, and the pedagogical and historical implications of his vision of a balancing-out of world cultures, are each related to the phenomenological procedures that Scheler adapted from E. Husserl. This is the first contribution to the specifically phenomenological aspects of Scheler's philosophy since E.W. Ranly's Scheler's Phenomenology of Community, published in 1966, and the only one to develop a global reading of Scheler's thought based upon the manuscripts by Scheler that have been published since 1973.

On Feeling, Knowing, and Valuing : Selected Writings (Heritage of Sociology) by Max Scheler, Harold J. Bershady (Editor)

One of the pioneers of modern sociology, Max Scheler (1874- 1928) ranks with Max Weber, Edmund Husserl, and Ernst Troeltsch as being among the most brilliant minds of his generation. Yet Scheler is now known chiefly for his philosophy of religion, despite his groundbreaking work in the sociology of knowledge, the sociology of emotions, and phenomenological sociology. This volume comprises some of Scheler's most interesting work--including an analysis of the role of sentiments in social interaction, a sociology of knowledge rooted in global social and cultural comparisons, and a cross-cultural theory of values--and identifies some of his important contributions to the discussion of issues at the forefront of the social sciences today. Editor Harold J. Bershady provides a richly detailed biographical portrait of Scheler, as well as an incisive analysis of how his work extends and integrates problems of theory and method addressed by Durkheim, Weber, and Parsons, among others. Harold J. Bershady, professor of sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, is the author of Ideology and Social Knowledgeand the editor of Social Class and Democratic Leadership - Essays in Honor of E. Digby Baltzell Heritage of Sociology series

Scheler's Critique of Kant's Ethics (Series in Continental Thought, No 22) by Philip Blosser

A gracefully-executed display of blinding reason, sheer eloquence and raw intellectual brilliance, "Scheler's Critique of Kant's Ethics" belongs on the bookshelf of every professional scholar of philosophy. In an environment largely dominated by the blatant sophistry and sentimental ego-stroking of postmodernist deconstructionism, Dr. Philip Blosser shines forth from the faculty department of Lenoir-Rhyne College as a beacon of hope and promise on the academic horizon. -- Anonymous Review

Max Scheler from Encarta Encyclopedia


German social and religious philosopher, whose work reflected the influence of the phenomenology of his countryman Edmund Husserl. Born in Munich, Scheler taught at the universities of Jena, Munich, and Cologne. In The Nature of Sympathy (1913; trans. 1970) he applied Husserl's method of detailed phenomenological description to the social emotions that relate human beings to one another—especially love and hate. This book was followed by his most famous work, Formalism in Ethics and Non-Formal Ethics of Values (1913; trans. 1973), a two volume study of ethics in which he criticized the formal ethical approach of the German philosopher Immanuel Kant and substituted for it a study of specific values as they directly present themselves to consciousness...
