Edith Stein is one of the most remarkable thinkers of the 20th century. She was born to a Jewish family on October 12, 1891 during the Yom Kippur holiday in the Prussian city of Breslau, present day Wroclaw in Poland.
She died in August 1942 in the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Through her life she left behind the legacy of a woman for whom the quest for search of truth was beyond everything, and this quest had brought her to the search of God.
Pope John Paul II. sanctified Edith Stein in 1998 and declared her a patron of Europe.
Life and thought of Edith Stein has come to symbolize the characteristics, identity and suffering of Euro-Atlantic, Judeo-Christian civilization.
In August 1916 Edith Stein defended her doctoral thesis entitled “On the Problem of Empathy” (Zum Problem der Einfuhlung) supervised by Edmund Husserl at the University in Freiburg im Breisgau. In what turned out to be her first major work Edith Stein focuses on the issue of inter-subjectivity, an issue Husserl had not examined closer. Husserl’s phenomenology examined the subject, and proceeding to the essence (intuition) had not examined the extent to which the perceiving of essence could be communicated to another subject.
Edith Stein analyzed this issue in relation to emphasizing with other subjects. Her work is one of the first attempts in 20th century to examine the experience of another being as bases of inter-subjective understanding.
The aim of the Edith Stein Fund in the Czech Republic is to fund the translation and publishing of Edith Stein works in the Czech language.
Besides publishing the works of Edith Stein the Fund also aims to publish works in philosophy, theology, art and cultural studies by authors previously not published in Czech, or not very well known in the Czech Republic.
Adéla Syberová is the Chairman of the Advisory Board of Edith Stein Fund in the Czech Republic. She studied art at the Webster University in Vienna and earned her postgraduate degrees at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and at the University of Notre Dame, USA.
