THEODORE KISIEL Date of start: October 30,1930. homeland: Brackenridge, Pennsylvania. Date of establishment of optimum measure: PhD. , Duquesne college, 1962. educational appointments: college of Dayton; Canisius university; Northwestern collage; Duquesne collage; Northern Illinois collage. I first left the college to pursue a occupation in metallurgical study and nuclear expertise. yet I quickly stumbled on myself drawn again to the uni­ versity to 'round out' an excessively really good schooling. It used to be alongside this course that i used to be 'waylaid' into philosophy by means of lecturers like H. L. Van Breda and Bernard Boelen. The philosophy division at Duquesne collage was once then (1958-1962) a veritable "little Louvain," and the Belgian-Dutch connection uncovered me to (among different vacationing students) Jean Ladriere and Joe Kockelmans, who planted the seeds which ultimately led me to the hybrid self-discipline of a hermeneutics of common technology, and caused me quickly after commencement to make the 1st of various prolonged visits to Belgium and Germany. The pastime to profit French and German led me to the duty of translating the phenomenological literature bearing particularly on traditional technological know-how and on Heidegger. the debate within the sixties used to be of a "continental divide" in philosophy among Europe and the Anglo-American global. yet in designing my classes within the philosophy of technological know-how, I evidently gravitated to the works of Hanson, Kuhn, Polanyi and Toulmin with no firstly absolutely knowing why I felt this sort of robust kinship with them, past their universal anti­ positivism.

Kaufmann did not limit himself to phenomenological courses. Only after Kaufmann's departure from Northwestern, the Department established its special reputation in phenomenology. Kaufmann had gone to Buffalo with great expectations 20 HANS H . RUDNICK in 1946. He received the title of Associate Professor and was welcomed in Buffalo by a brass band and a red carpet reception upon his arrival at the railroad station. But as time went by the promises that had been given him did not materialize. Kaufmann felt rather miserable during the years at Buffalo.

Art can be taken for the keystone of all creation since the otherwise opaque nature of things reveals itself in concrete existence through art. In all creativity the formative essence proves itself. In Coleridge's words: "forma formans formam formatam translucens" (the forming form shimmers through the formed form. Kaufmann, 1960, 134). This, according to Kaufmann, names the peculiar claim of absolute art. And, in Rilke's words (I. 734), the artist "gehorcht, indem er iiberschreitet" (obeys by transgressing); he responds in his own way to the desire of creation by transposing from transitoriness (Vergiinglichkeit) into a complete present which can be experienced at any time (Kaufmann, 1960, 135).
