Born into a devout Jewish family, Edith Stein was drawn to philosophy and in 1913 went to study with the phenomenologist Edmund Husserl in Gottingen. Later she was to convert to Catholicism and in 1942 she was murdered in Auschwitz-Birkenau; but in this study, MacIntyre focuses on her philosophical background in the early decades of the 20th century, and gives a clear account of the questions and insights her writings offer students of Husserl, Heidegger and the Thomism of the 1920s and 1930s.
