Abstract
This thesis addresses the topic of the philosophical contributions of Edith Stein to the area of philosophy known as phenomenology. This thesis will examine Edith Stein's life up until the acceptance of her doctoral dissertation, On The Problem of Empathy, in August, 1916. A particular attention will be given to the years 1913-1915 when her doctoral dissertation was being conceived and written. The central question being did Edith Stein make any unique and independent contributions to the philosophy of phenomenology?Because Edith Stein was canonized a Saint by the Roman Catholic Church in 1998 a great deal of research material has recently been made available on her life. Using this and other sources as evidence, this thesis will make the argument that Edith Stein did in fact make heretofor unaccredited and important contributions to the area of philosophy known as phenomenology.
