Edith Stein's doctoral dissertation under Husserl, with index. 

Early in Edith Stein's philosophical output stands her doctoral dissertation defended in 1916 at Freiburg-im-Breisgau. On the Problem of Empathy is the fruit of several years' work with the founder of phenomenology and the director of the dissertation itself, Edmund Husserl.

Stein follows the reflections of Husserl in volume 2 of his Ideas, but in several respects adopts an independent stance of her own. Her work takes into consideration problems dealt with by philosophers of her period like Wilhelm Dilthey, Max Scheler, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. This book offers clear analyses as it delves into questions that continue to concern philosophers today. The translator is a grandniece of Edith Stein.
