Even though this volume represents half of the essays from the North American region, it reflects the breadth and scope of interest that characterized the international meeting of phenomenologists in Hong Kong. It contains nineteen essays from Canadian and United States phenomenologists representing thirteen different phenomenological organizations. This volume is organized roughly—give that there is an inevitable overlapping—in terms of the historical figures in the phenomenological movement, beginning with Edmund Husserl, and then following with sections devoted to the Contemporaries of Husserl, The First Generation after Husserl, and Other Authors and Themes. Of course, each of these section headings often embraces a variety of philosophers, with, for example, “The First Generation” including the work of Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Emmanuel Levinas, and Paul Ricoeur. In addition, in each section the essayists take up different aspects of the thought of these figures in the tradition or find novel applications to areas that these figures might never have anticipated. One has the sense in these essays that phenomenology is a growing philosophical movement encompassing a rich variety of thinkers and topics, across generations and across continents.
