Vocations, Social Identities, Spirituality: Phenomenological Perspectives
Edited By Jana Trajtelová
The fourth volume of the «Yearbook on History and Interpretation of Phenomenology: Vocations, Social Identities, Spirituality: Phenomenological Perspectives» presents variety of contemporary authors who explore the problem of vocation and closely related phenomena of personal, social, cultural (and transcultural) identity. They, altogether, point to its indispensable significance for our deeper understanding of the philosophical category of a «person», and a personal community, with all of its moral and axiological weight. The elucidation of our personal and social identities also unavoidably accompanies an ongoing, mutually respectful dialogue with other distinctive cultural life-worlds.

Emociones Morales e Identidad Personal
Abstract: Chapter 4 of Iribarne’s De la ética a la metafísica deals with the question of personal identity in Edmund Husserl’s thought. The objective of this chapter is the exposition of a kind of “subject’s archaeology” which takes place between two poles: on the one hand, that which Husserl calls the “flowing living present” and, on the other hand, this same concrete ego, but “now seen as unique and a unique person”. An important step in this archaeological process has to do with personal identity considered on the moral level of a human person. In this regard, the paper tries to show that the so-called “moral emotions”, as interpersonal and therefore social experiences, play an important role in the constitution and revelation of the unique person that each of us is. To do this I will refer to the recent book by A. J. Steinbock, Moral Emotions: Reclaiming the Evidence of the Heart, which has to be considered in the more general framework of what Husserl calls “vertical phenomenology”. In this way I try to develop Iribarne’s analysis on the mentioned chapter.
