About our Network

The Network for Phenomenological Research (NfPR) aims at developing and promoting dialogues and inquiries that are inspired by a unique period in philosophy.

Those philosophers developed fecund descriptions of a wealth of phenomena, which are supported by careful argumentation, conceptual analysis, and attention to empirical evidence. Importantly, many of these insights emerged as the result of a collaborative process of scientific and interdisciplinary exchange among peers.

To reach these goals, the NfPR holds a biennial conference and is also engaged with initiating and supporting philosophical collaboration and dissemination related to its scope, aims, and rationale. The first conference of the NfPR took place in December 2017 in Munich on the occasion of Adolf Reinach’s Centennial (
