Reinach, Adolf


Alessandro Salice


Pages 489 - 492



Adolf Reinach (1883-1917) was one of the main representatives of early phenomenology. He studied in Munich before moving to Göttingen, where he worked with Edmund Husserl. Even though Reinach did not elaborate a mereological theory in its own right, he made an innovative use of some mereological concepts originally developed by Husserl in the third of his Logical Investigations (“On the theory of wholes and parts”).
