Quito launches book on phenomenology

Professor Emeritus Dr. Emerita S. Quito published a book on phenomenology based on the works of German Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology, and Edith Stein.

The volume on Edmund Husserl and Edith Stein’s phenomenology is the first volume in the Philippines that dwells exclusively on phenomenology and bases its explication on the original works of Husserl.

On the foreword, Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC, vice president for academics and research (VPAR), writes that the added premium in the book is the relationship set up with Merleau-Ponty’s writings in the development of some of Husserl’s seminal ideas. He also notes that largest dividend of this volume is the introduction to the key work of Husserl’s intellectual daughter Edith Stein. It is also the first work on Edith Stein’s concept of empathy.

Quito gives valuable contribution to the study of phenomenology, providing her own interpretation of this rich philosophical method.

Published by the Office of the Executive Vice President, the book is the 17th published work of the author who served DLSU-M as chair of the Department of Philiosophy, dean of the Graduate School of Education and vice president for Academics. Quito retired from the University in 1993 as Professor Emeritus.

Dr. Emerita S. Quito finished her doctorate in Philosophy at the Universite’ de Fribourg, Switzerland in 1965. Her dissertation, La notion de la Libertè participèe dans la philosophie de Louis Lavelle, was published by the University and included in the Studia Friburgensia, the University collection of outstanding theses.
