THE MONIST, vol. 97, no. 1 (“The Phi­los­o­phy of Robert Musil”) in which my essay, “What Is an Emo­tion? Musil’s Adver­bial The­o­ry,” appeared. Thanks to Bence Nanay for edit­ing the Spe­cial Issue. At the time of my PhD the­sis and book on Musil (1999), peo­ple were skep­ti­cal about inte­grat­ing Musil into the canon of “true” philoso­phers. But then I went to Berke­ley in order to work with Bernard Williams, and he rec­om­mend­ed Peter Goldie’s PhD the­sis and book on the emo­tions to me. It turned out that Peter’s the­o­ry was in fact strong­ly influ­enced by Musil, and Peter is very explic­it about this. Now there is the Spe­cial Issue: how long will it take until Musil will be tak­en that seri­ous­ly as a philoso­pher in Ger­many? Col­leagues even rec­om­mend­ed to get the book trans­lat­ed into Eng­lish 😉
