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 😉
