The history of phenomenology in North America does not simply tell the story of a transfer of contents across the Atlantic, for the reception of phenomenology was not merely a matter of passively absorbing a given doctrine. What took place was an active re-elaboration and re-shaping, whose goal was to “adapt” the phenomenological approach to the aims, research strategies, debates and worldviews typical of the North American philosophy of the time. This generated many enlightening debates within the North American phenomenological world, as well as between that world and the representatives of other philosophical traditions. So phenomenology intermingled with analytical philosophy, leading to the rise of analytic phenomenology, a tradition that counts among its leading figures Hubert Dreyfus, Sam Todes and Dagfinn Føllesdal This issue of “Discipline filosofiche” will assess the process of re-elaboration and re-definition that Husserl’s phenomenology underwent in North America not only from the standpoint of its historical-philosophical implications, but especially in view of its theoretical outcomes, the underlying conviction being that the exploration of such debates can offer the opportunity to outline a new interpretative canon for Husserlian phenomenology.
