Making the case for Gestalt organization

Edmund Husserl and Aron Gurwitsch on the problem of independent parts

Daniel Marcelle

pp. 197-222

Dr. Lester Embree has done much to advance phenomenology through his many presentations and publications, but his greatest contribution lies in his worldwide promotion of the tradition through the organization of phenomenologists through meetings, groups, and volumes. A brief history of some of Embree's key involvements in this regard demonstrates this. Even before he had earned his Ph.D. from the New School for Social Research in 1972, Embree was already involved in founding an important North American based but internationally comprised phenomenological organization, the Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology, Inc. (CARP), in 1971. Just two years later he would organize his first symposium, notably in memory of his dissertation advisor Aron Gurwitsch, the papers of which were prepared by Embree into a volume and published. The success of these two projects would encourage many more organizations, meetings, and volumes.
