From consciousness to being

Edith Stein's philosophy and its reception in North America

Antonio Calcagno

pp. 417-431

In this chapter, I discuss the impact and legacy of Edith Stein's philosophy in Canada and the United States. I identify three waves of reception of Stein's philosophical work since her untimely death in 1942. The first phase we can refer to as the "Preservation of Edith Stein's Legacy." The second phase consists of a dissemination of her work and the third, more contemporary phase revolves around new scholarship and applications of her thought to various philosophical and social-political questions. Deeply structured and conditioned by Protestant sensibilities, Canada and the United States have divided Stein's philosophical legacy along two lines: phenomenology and Christian philosophy.
