The papers collected in this issue aim to contribute to the growing international discussion of the wide-ranging work of early twentieth century German philosopher Nicolai Hartmann. With the exception of the included translation and its accompanying introduction, earlier versions of the essays gathered here were first presented at a Nicolai Hartmann Society panel on Hartmann’s work at the 54th meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP), the second largest philosophy organization in North America, on October 8, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Organized by the current president of the NHS, Keith Peterson (Colby College, Waterville, Maine, USA), this was the third such panel at a major US conference in the past 4 years. Previous panels were organized by Eugene Kelly at the American Philosophical Association Central Division meeting in February, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana, as well as the 51st SPEP conference in Rochester, New York, in 2012, organized by Peterson. In 2014, the most recent independent meeting of the NHS was held in Trento, Italy, and a number of papers were collected in a volume of conference proceedings and published by Walter de Gruyter in January of 2016, titled New Research on the Philosophy of Nicolai Hartmann and edited by Keith Peterson and Roberto Poli (former president of the NHS). The NHS is looking forward to organizing more smaller panels, and to a joint conference with the Max Scheler Society and Helmuth Plessner Gesellschaft in Köln, Germany, in 2019.
