Collected Works of Edith Stein, Vol. 7
Translated by Mary Catharine Baseheart and Marianne Sawicki

“In this volume, her most profound and carefully argued phenomenology of human creativity, Edith Stein explores the interplay of causal constraints and motivated choices. She demonstrates that physical events and physiological processes do not entirely determine behavior … The human body is a complex interface between the material world and an equally real world of personal value. … Communities are reservoirs of the meaning and value that fuel both our everyday choices and our once-in-a-lifetime accomplishments. This basic fact, she argues, is the starting point for any viable political or social theory.”  [From the cover]
