FERREIRA, Danilo Souza. Edith Stein between the psychology of William Stern and the phenomenology of Edmund Husserl: entre la psicología de William Stern y la fenomenología de Edmund Husserl. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.1, pp. 114-132. ISSN 2175-2591.

In this article we bring a brief biography of Edith Stein. Such work is justified for two reasons: the first is the presentation of the philosopher, who is little known by the Brazilian academy, and the second reason is the intimate relationship between her life and the crucial historical events that marked the first half of the 20th century, mainly the History of Germany in the modern period, as well as the First World War, the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazism in Germany, in addition to the emergence of theoretical currents such as phenomenology. We will seek in particular, in this text, to describe the strong influences that Stein suffered from the psychologist William Stern, a member of the Wurzburg school and professor in Breslau, and from the phenomenologist Edmund Husserl, who taught Philosophy classes in Gottingen, and with whom she developed her reflection on the role of empathy as constitutive of the relationship between individuals, as well as its relationship with history.

Keywords : edith stein; phenomenology; intellectual history.
