German Philosophy in Prague

Franz Brentano was probably the most important of Edmund Husserl’s teachers. While philosophy at Charles University did not pay much attention to him, Brentano became the greatest authority for the philosophers of “Prague German University”. – The author of this paper reflects mainly on three important figures of Prague German philosophy (Oskar Kraus, Carl Stumpf, Emil Utitz): figures that were very different (in their world views, attitudes to Czech philosophy and political orientations). What brings them together is Brentano’s legacy. – Besides a number of factual and nowadays little-known historical data the author presents a personal memory of Emil Utitz.
