"Psychology, Reinach argues, is capable of assisting in the clarification of the legal meaning of theconcept of cause via appeal to the notion of a psychic regularity.
This same notion can help also in theclarification of the probable intent of specific laws. From the point of view of Reinach's laterphilosophy, the work may be seen as a study of the legal determinations [Bestimmungen]
of positivelaw and of the development of aids for their practical interpretation. There is as yet however nosuggestion of his doctrine of the a priori
structures underlying legal formations."Barry Smith - An annotated bibliography

"Natorp had claimed that the I can never be an object of consciousness and thus it cannot form part ofthe subject-matter of psychology. The latter is restricted to the contents of consciousness, i.e. to all ofthat of which one is conscious. Reinach argues that it is grounded in the essence of cogitationes
thatthey can exist only as experiences of an I. Thus he defends the Cartesian view according to which thecogito
is the starting poing of our knowing, and he insists that the I is present in each and everyexperience. However, the pure I - as distinct from the empirical person - is not a thing withcharacteristics; Natorp may therefore be correct in his view that it 'does not admit of any explanation'.
But this does not rule out the clarification of the ways in which it interrelates with other elements inessential structures.
In grasping itself the I is both bearer and end-point of a grasping act. Unlike Natorp, who insisted thateach relation must have two terms, Reinach sees no difficulty here, since intentionality is not a relationin the usual sense."Barry Smith - An annotated bibliography

"Contains an analysis of continuity and of the essence of traversing of space, the results of

Reinach asserts that it is self-evident that all real motion requires a bearer, but denies that this impliesthat all perception of motion involves the perception of a bearer. I can speak of motion and intendmotion without at the same intending something that moves."Barry Smith - An annotated bibliography

1. Reinach, Adolf. 1968. "What Is Phenomenology." The Philosophical Forum
Translation and introduction by Derek Kelly.
"Reinach's essay is a brief introduction to applied phenomenology. The first part of the essay isexegetical: Reinachexplains the philosophic limitations and problems of the sciences of psychology and
of mathematics, and discusses in particular the work of Hilbert and Kronecker. In the second part ofthe paper, Reinach develops ths concept of the 'a priori.' He rejects both the positivist conception ofsolely analytic 'a priori,' and also the Kantian notion of necessary conditions for thought. Reinachargues that the 'a priori' is legitimately seen not as subjective or as necessary for thought, but as anecessity of being."

Translation by Dallas Willard.
"This paper attempts to illustrate how phenomenological research is done. For Reinach,phenomenology is an attitude or way of seeing, not a set of truths. It is the examination of essences, oruniversals, and their interconnections. Reinach discusses and illustrates how such examination isrequired in descriptive psychology, and how it is essentially dispensed with in mathematics, asunderstood by Hilbert. There follows a critique of Frege's view of number, and a phenomenologicalelucidation of the distinction between cardinal and ordinal numbers. Reinach's final remarks aredevoted to misinterpretations of the "a priori" and to its correct analysis."

"The aim of the essay consists in analyzing one of the most important points of discussion among someof Husserl's disciples: A. Reinach, R. Ingarden, H. Conrad-Martius, E. Stein, that is the existence of theworld and the way to prove it. The research leads to two consequences: to pinpoint Husserl's particularand original interpretation regarding "existence" that concludes to the acceptance of it and thedifference between his transcendental phenomenology and that one sustained by his disciples that canbe called a realistic phenomenology. In this contest E. Stein assumed a peculiar position that to someextend combines the two attitudes."

"Austin is certainly the founding father of speech act theory as we have known it in recent decades, andone reason why Reinach's views on social acts are worthy of attention is the extent of their anticipationof Austin's work and their contribution to the understanding of human communicative action. Motheris their bearing on the thesis that fundamental concepts of civil law are found, and not introduced, bypositive law. A further reason is that, apart from anticipating the work of others, Reinach explores akind of social act which appears to have been neglected by subsequent speech act theorists. I refer torepresentative acts, where one person acts for or on behalf of or in the name of another! I shall first tryto set out Reinach's views (sections 1 and 2), and then discuss some issues which they raise, inparticular that of sincerity (sections 3 and 4) then that of prior empowerment for representative acts(section 5)."

"Écartant les questions traditionnelles de savoir comment il s'est singularisé dans l'histoire de ladoctrine allemande du droit et les raisons qui font de lui l'un des précurseurs de la théorie des actes delangages, la présente étude évalue l'intérêt juridique de l'approche « intuitionniste » de Reinach.
L'utilisation conjointe de sa définition de la promesse et des travaux de Jean-Louis Gardies devraientmontrer l'impasse théorique et le faible intérêt pratique de son intuitionnisme, et ce faisant contribuerà diriger les recherches phénoménologiques en théorie du droit vers les travaux du Husserl des Idéesdirectrices."

"Bien qu'il ait été commenté par les plus illustres (Husserl, Kantorowicz, Radbruch, Villey.) et que l'onait récemment pris la mesure de son importance en philosophie, Reinach n'a toujours pas su trouver saplace en théorie du droit. Comprendre l'impasse théorique et le faible intérét pratique de son approcheintuitionniste avait seulement suggéré de rediriger les recherches phénoménologiques en droit vers lesoeuvres tardives de Husserl. La présente analyse propose de relire Reinach à partir d'un texte dejeunesse quasi inconnu, sa Dissertation de 1905 Sur le Concept de cause en droit pénal.
Reinach yapparait alors non seulement un représentant exemplaire des contradictions du positivisme de la fin duXIXe siècle, mais aussi une aide précieuse pour conceptualiser la cause en droit. Précurseur en ce quiconcerne les actes de langages, Reinach l'est aussi en ce qui concerne le concept de causalité. Reinachthéoricien du droit gagne ainsi pertinence, profondeur et actualité.

"In 1929 Husserl wrote that Hume's real greatness was still unrecognised in its most important aspect.
Now I believe that the contribution to Hume studies by Husserl - as conveyed by Jean Laporte inFrance and Kemp Smith in Britain - and by his pupil Reinach, have gone a long way towards changingthis state of affairs, because of a new way of reading Hume's Treatise
that they introduced. I first setout Husserl's early views on Hume and then turn to Reinach's paper on Hume, which builds on thiswork, but also goes a long way beyond it and isolates the most important aspect of Hume'sachievement." (p. 257)

"The outline of our study is as follows.
Chapter One explores Reinach's conception of the judgment in terms of a state of belief, an act ofassertion, and an ideal meaning-unit. We
examine his understanding of states of affairs, the objectual-correlates to judgments of all kinds. We further investigate how it is that the mind becomes directedtowards states of affairs, and this involves us in a study of Reinach's understanding of the relationshipsbetween intentionality, presentation, and intuitive fullness. Particularly here we see Reinach'sindebtedness to Husserl. Towards the end of the chapter we consider briefly the concepts of evidenceand knowledge -- for a judgment cannot be considered rational unless it is somehow related toobjective being through evidence or direct knowledge.
In Chapter Two, we examine Reinach's claim that negative states of affairs subsist or obtain just as dopositive states of affairs. Here a confrontation with Ingarden's ontological investigations is particularlyhelpful, and something of a compromise position is defended. Reinach's discussion of negationprovides us with the opportunity to better understand the nature of concepts and properties, and thepeculiar sort of existence espoused by these. Chisholm's view of negative properties and states of affairsis compared to Reinach's, and here too we argue for modifications of both views.
In Chapter Three we examine how Reinach's ontology of states of affairs is seen to lie at the basis ofmost traditional epistemological distinctions. Thus, distinctions between states of affairs give rise to thedifferences between necessary and contingent, synthetic and analytic, and formal and materialjudgments. We investigate further why philosophical insight is possible with regard to the states ofaffairs grounded in some essences, but not others. At this point we turn to the work of Reinach'sstudent, Dietrich von Hildebrand, where he distinguishes between accidental essential unities, morphicessential unities, and necessary essential unities, only the last of which can be known through insight oressential intuition. We close the chapter with a defense of insight, and a discussion of its place inphilosophical argumentation.
By the time we reach Chapter Four, we have already investigated the nature of many logically relevantconcepts, such as proposition, truth and falsity, implication, ontological modality, analycity andsyntheticity. However, it seems worthwhile to present Reinach's overall conception of logic, aconception which is at the same time classical and original. In connection with his work on logic wediscuss briefly Reinach's conception of numbers. Interestingly, Reinach rejects the existence of ordinalnumbers, and he argues that cardinal numbers cannot be predicated. As one might expect, hisexplanation of the ontological correlates to the truths of arithmetic involves a fascinating application ofhis philosophy of states of affairs.
In Chapter Five we examine his "Apriori Foundations of the Civil Law". Particularly here we are forcedto prescind from many interesting and worthwhile ideas. Our interest in this work is restricted to hisdiscovery of social acts (better known today as speech acts), and in particular the nonasserting ornonjudging character of these acts. These acts are neither correct nor incorrect, for they are not"conforming" acts, or acts of "fit". They are rather "grounded" or "ungrounded" and "effective" or"ineffective". A confrontation of his analysis of promising with that of Searle allows us to test thesoundness of Reinach's ontology of essences and his recognition of synthetic a priori
states of affairsand truths. Finally, we examine Reinach's claim that he has discovered a new sort of object: real,temporal objects, which are neither physical nor mental.
In Chapter Six, our concluding chapter, we look at Reinach as a
phenomenologist. By the time we reachthis last chapter, many will understand why we call Reinach a realist, but they will wonder whatcharacterizes him as a phenomenologist. We present a few key ideas from his lecture "ConcerningPhenomenology" and defend an interpretation of the phenomenological attitude as characterized aboveall by a rigorous fidelity to what is given. While we refuse to take up a confrontation of Reinach'sphenomenological realism with the motives for Husserl's transcendental idealism, we do briefly suggestsome philosophical reasons which make intelligible Reinach's unwillingness to espouse the "newdevelopments". We conclude the book by suggesting one sense in which Reinach's analysis of humanacts stands in need of a
"subjective" grounding, though not of the sort Husserl suggests." (pp. 3-5).

"One of the most interesting contributions to philosophy in Adolf Reinach's work The A PrioriFoundations of Civil Law
is the analysis the author puts forward of what he generally calls social acts.
This analysis is extended to deal with such specific types of social acts as promises, orders, prayers,requests, communications (mitteilen),
questions, the particulars of which are all gone into by Reinach.
When, much later, Anglo-Saxon authors such as Austin and Searle discovered the quite specialcharacter of speech-acts it is almost certain that Reinach could have had no influence on them, for theyknew nothing of his work. Even if they had had some indirect acquaintance with the work it is by nomeans certain that they could have profited from its analyses. The intuitionist style that marks thework, which appeared in 1913 as part of the first large wave of the phenomenological movementremoves it almost totally from the purview of the analytic approach of the Anglo-Saxon tradition withinwhich the new theory of speech-acts was to find its natural home. Since the two philosophies use quitedifferent languages it would have been difficult to see that there was a shared subject matter and thatsome at least of the conclusions were the same." (p. 107)(.)"Reinach's merit is to have given superb demonstrations of the a priori character of the pure science oflaw. He has annihilated psychologism, sociologism andhistoricism in the legal sphere as surely as Fregehad annihilated them in the realm of mathematics. It remains to provide each of his remarkableanalyses with its theoretical explanation in order to establish that, in the last instance, the a priori
judgements whose existence at the basis of civil law he has
revealed, are themselves analytic." (p. 117).

"If one is to believe Mephistopheles, even the devil seems to be bound to keep a promise and theexplanation of this state of affairs requires more than just a few words.
In the twentieth century various well-known philosophers have gone into great detail in order to clearup the question why promises can give rise to obligations. The works of Adolf Reinach and John Searleare two outstanding examples of attempts to analyse promising. In what follows I shall compare theiraccounts as precisely as possible in order to provide arguments for and against the view that thefamous analysis by John Searle was already anticipated by Adolf Reinach in 1913.
I begin with an examination of the relation between Reinach's (category of) social acts and Searle's(category of) speech acts in which I concentrate on the relations between entities and laws on the onehand and institutional facts and rules on the other. Finally, I scrutinize the different conception of`obligation' in the two accounts." (p. 91)

"For Reinach as for Russell, the state of affairs called "the being snub-nosed of Socrates" contains as"objectual elements" (gegenstiindliche Elemente, gegenstandliche Glieder)37 a "real" as well as an"ideal object"," Socrates and the property of being snub-nosed. Reinach clearly recognizes, what someanalytical philosophers do not, that "states of affairs cannot be simply stuck together(zusammengestoppelt
), as it were, out of arbitrary elements"? Only if somebody (rightly or wrongly)can judge or believe that a is P, is there such a thing as the (obtaining or not obtaining) state of affairs,the being P of a (See § 3 above).
Reflecting on attributes like possibility and necessity, Reinach stresses "that it is . states of affairs andonly states of affairs, which can adopt such modalities". I shall try now to clarify the relevance of thisReinachian observation in the final section of this paper." (p. 185 - notes omitted).

From the Preface: "Phenomenology as practised by Adolf Reinach (1883-1917) in his all too briefphilosophical career exemplifies all the virtues of Husserl's Logical Investigations.
It is sober,concerned to be clear and deals with specific problems. It is therefore understandable that, in aphilosophical climate in which Husserl's masterpiece has come to be regarded as a mere stepping stoneon the way to his later Phenomenology, or even to the writings of a Heidegger, Reinach's contributionsto exact philosophy have been all but totally forgotten. The topics on which Reinach wrote mostilluminatingly, speech acts (which he called 'social acts') and states of affairs (Sachverhalte), as
well ashis realism about the external world, have come to be regarded as the preserve of other traditions ofexact philosophy. Like my fellow-contributors, I hope that the present volume will go some waytowards correcting this unfortunate historical accident.
Reinach's account of judgements and states of affairs, an account that precedes those of Russell andWittgenstein, his 1913 treatment of speech acts, his reinterpretation of Hume and aspects of his legalphilosophy are the main philosophical topics dealt with in what follows. But his analysis of deliberationas well as his work on movement and Zeno's paradoxes get only a passing mention."

"The discovery of what Reinach called social acts
(in 1913) and Austin speech acts
(in 1962) was firstand foremost the discovery of a type of linguistic action which, Reinach and Austin are convinced, hadsimply not been noticed hitherto. It is true that both authors present their discovery within atheoretical framework and that they hoped that their accounts of the phenomenon discovered would betaken as representative of new ways of doing philosophy. It is also true that there are great differencesbetween the frameworks and the hopes of the two philosophers. But both are emphatic that theirprimary objective is to bring into focus, and fully describe,
a phenomenon of which promising is theirfavourite example. Other social acts dealt with in some detail by Reinach are requesting, questioning,ordering, imparting information, accepting a promise and legal enactment, which - except for the lasttwo - are all at least touched on by Austin.

"The judgment constitutes a fundamental notion for several disciplines such as descriptive psychology,
ontology and logic, and hence its investigation represents a pivotal area of research within theoreticalphilosophy. Inside the Brentano-School, Alexius Meinong (1853-1920) and Adolf Reinach (1883-1917)made significant contributions to this topic, separating and exploring both the subjective side ofjudgment (the intentional experience of judging) as well as its objective side (the “state of affairs” or the“objective”). In this publication Meinong’s and Reinach’s lore regarding the psychological and object-theoretical aspects of judgment are explicated, compared and evaluated."

"The paper investigates the role played by ethical deliberation and ethical judgment in Wittgenstein'searly thought in the light of twentieth-century German legal philosophy. In particular the theories ofthe phenomenologists Adolf Reinach, Wilhelm Schapp, and Gerhart Husserl are singled out, as restingon ontologies which are structurally similar to that of the Tractatus
: in each case it is actual andpossible Sachverhalte
which constitute the prime ontological category. The study of the relationshipbetween the States of Affairs depicted, e.g., in the sentences of a legal trial and prior fact-complexes towhich these may correspond suggests one possible connecting link between the logical and ontologicalsections of the Tractatus
and the ethical reflections appearing at the end. It is argued that the latter canbest be understood in terms of the idea of a "Last judgment" (with its associated ethical rewards andpunishments) which would relate to the world as a whole as a penal trial relates to individualcomplexes of facts."

"When the present volume was first conceived, it was confidently believed that a survey of the literatureon Reinach's thought could be kept within comfortable limits. It rapidly became clear, however, thatthis was not the case. Reinach's discoveries in the sphere of speech act theory have, it is true, gonealmost unnoticed. Reinach has nevertheless enjoyed an enduring notoriety among those working in thephilosophy of law, and ever since its appearance in 1913, Reinach's work on "Die apriorischenGrundlagen des burgerlichen Rechtes" has served as the principal representative of phenomenological,aprioristic and ontological/realist approaches in this discipline. His name accordingly appears in themajority of the more substantial general treatises in the discipline (or at least in those treatises andreference works published in countries whose law and philosophy have been influenced by theGermanic tradition: Edwards' great Encyclopedia of Philosophy
does not contain even a mention ofReinach).
The goal of completeness has therefore been abandoned in what follows, and items containing merelypassing references to Reinach's work have been listed only where they are of particular historicalimportance or bear evidence of some more substantial influence. The list has been compiled with theassistance of N. Bokhove, A.G. Conte and M.-E. Conte, J. Crosby, N. Duxbury, J. Joerden, S. Paulson,H. Spiegelberg and the indefatigable librarians of the University of Erlangen."
51. ———. 1989. "Logic and the Sachverhalt." The Monist
"Logic is often conceived as a science of propositions, or of relations between propositions. There is analternativeview, however, defended by Meinong, Pfänder, Reinach and others, which sees logic as ascience of Sachverhalte
or States of Affairs. A consideration of this view, which was defended especiallyby thinkers within the tradition of Brentano, throws new light on the problems of intentionality and ofmental content. It throws light also on the development of logic in Poland. Here the influence ofBrentano's student Kasimir Twardowski is especially important, and the paper concludes with a newinterpretation of Tarski's work on truth against the background of Twardowski's thinking."

"The author examines several examples (given by Husserl and his pupil, Adolf Reinach, and pertainingmainly to the social sphere) of allegedly analytic and synthetic a priori propositions. In a detailed line ofargument -- drawing among others on the theory of speech acts -- the author shows difficulties withclassifying some of those examples as analytic."
