Die Spannweite des Daseins
Philosophie, Theologie, Psychotherapie und Religionswissenschaft im Gespräch
Für Augustinus Karl Wucherer-Huldenfeld
1. Edition 2011

This anthology deals with the work of Augustinus Wucherer-Huldenfelds, one of Austria’s most prominent philosophers of the late 20th and early 21st century. His thinking sets out from initial human experience by way of a newly conceived phenomenological hermeneutical method. Wucherer-Huldenfeld develops a fundamental ontology that takes European conceptions of ‘thinking of being’ and ‘thinking of origin’ further and merges them into a philosophical theology and religious philosophy. The contributors deal with what according to Wucherer-Huldenfeld’s philosophy is an essential relationship between thoughts on existence, ontology and theology, as well as topics from the fields of ethics and morality, philosophy of language and the phenomenology of knowledge, therapy and aesthetics, and also religion, atheism research and spirituality. The anthology demonstrates that the work of the Austrian philosopher is a source of interdisciplinary richness and international appeal that is seldom encountered in the research landscape.
