Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Ludwig Landgrebe was born on March 9, 1902, in Vienna, Austria. After obtaining his Matura in 1921, he studied Philosophy, Geography, and History at the University of Vienna for three semesters. In 1933, Landgrebe finally obtained the approval to present the habilitation, although since Kraus was a harsh critic of Husserl, he had asked Landgrebe to write on a different topic. By 1934, Landgrebe had accordingly produced a new text with the title The Nominative Function and Linguistic Meaning, a study on Anton Marty, while the original project remained unpublished until 2010. The progressive development of Landgrebe’s reflections goes on to consider the relation between self-motivated movement, history, and individuation through the notion of teleology. Moreover, the main insight of Landgrebe’s interpretation of Marx consists in analyzing the core notions of the latter’s reflections on nature and culture in terms of Husserl’s genetic phenomenology.
