The Impact of North American Phenomenological Organizations: The Chronicle Revisited
The “Chronicle Revisited” is a reflection on the contemporary state of phenomenological organizations in North America. I originally published a chronicle documenting the formation, key members, activities, and accomplishments of phenomenological organizations in North America in 2005. The present essay is a revisitation of the original chronicle with a reflection on the development of organizations from the standpoint of 2015. Newly formed organizations have been added to the chronicle as well. The reflection describes the fascinating regional diffusion of popular themes and interests as well as the influence of key figures in the history of North American phenomenological organizations.
