WAIS Welcomes Helmut Kohlenberger (John Eipper) (John Eipper, USA, 10/22/07 7:42 am)

JE: I am pleased to introduce our newest WAISer, Dr. Helmut Kohlenberger of Salzburg, Austria. Helmut, who was nominated by David Pike, sends the following

Born in Moravia in 1942, I went to school in postwar Germany. My
fields of study have been philosophy and education. In Tübingen at the
time I studied mainly history of philosophy in the German 19th-century
tradition, rooted in Kant and Hegel, and I was taught in a vaguely
Heideggerian atmosphere. I got interested especially in Medieval
studies, which I followed more thoroughly at the University of Bochum.
At Oxford I met Raymond Klibansky, with whom I worked on a committee
for Medieval studies and on the International Bibliography of
Philosophy (sponsored by Unesco) for more than thirty years. Meeting
Jan Patoka, one of Husserl's pupils, a leading scholar in
phenomenology and counselor to the "Charta 77" movement, took me to
Prague especially in the 1960s and '70s. Towards the end of my studies
at Tübingen I also met Friedrich H. Tenbruck, with whom I got
acquainted with sociological questions in the Max Weber tradition.

In Vienna I taught history of ideas (1973 - 1987) and worked for the
Austrian Radio. At the time Eastern European and Austrian
intellectuals in exile (like Leszek Kolakowski and Manès Sperber) and
French authors like Emmanuel Lévinas in Paris redesigned my field of
studies and teaching into questions of anthropological and cultural
paradigms. In particular Austrian authors in exile who bridge
philosophical questions and literature attracted my interest.
Since the late 1980s I have lived near Salzburg. Besides teaching
there I have been a guest lecturer abroad, a translator and member of
editorial boards as well.

JE: Welcome to WAIS, Helmut Kohlenberger!
