By K.H. Wolff

This factor of Human reviews is devoted to Alfred Schutz at the twen ty-fifth anniversary of his loss of life. It is also intended as a fond and admiring salute to at least one of Schutz's most eminent scholars and his highbrow biographer, Helmut R. Wagner, at the celebration ofhis 80th birthday. the 1st paper, by way of Wagner himself, is the 1st of 3 that have been provided on the consultation in honor of Alfred Schutz, which was once chaired via George Psathas, on the annual assembly of the japanese Sociological Society on March nine, 1984 in Boston. it truly is in accordance with Wagner's intel lectual biography of Schutz, reviewed during this factor by means of David M. Ras mussen, and exhibits how Wagner stumbled on the most conceptual instruments of this biography in Schutz's personal theoretical paintings. the second one paper, via Jonathan B. Imber, offers a clean and far-reaching interpretation of Schutz's "The Well-Informed Citizen," and the 3rd, via David M. Rasmussen, compares Schutz with Habermas, in particular Habermas's most modern significant paintings, thought of Communicative motion. The dis cussion of those 3 papers via the current writer attempts to teach that all of them contact, regardless of ameliorations in concentration and perspec, tive, on a prob lem in Schutz's perception of phenomenology and social technology. In Ingeborg Katharina Helling's essay, the connection among Al fred Schutz and Felix Kaufmann, and hence the interaction among phenomenology and the positivism of the Vienna Circle, is analyzed.
