On Emotional Presentation, first published in German in 1917, contains the Austrian philosopher Alexius Meinong’s clearest and most developed account of the emotions and their relation to values. In this work, written toward the end of his life, Meinong argues that values are given in and through emotions but are also ontologically independent of these emotions or any subjective attitude.

Available again in English, with a new foreword by John J. Drummond that situates Meinong’s account within contemporary discussions of the emotions, this translation will be welcome to those interested in Meinong and his theory of objects as well as those interested in the philosophy of the emotions and values.


“Readers interested in the phenomenology of emotions will find in Meinong’s treatise both supplementary and challenging conclusions that help refine our understanding of the complex structure of the emotions and how they come to integrate constitutive elements of our person with larger, external reality. Drummond’s new introduction expertly leads the reader to appreciate the acuity and depth of Meinong’s project.”—Antonio Calcagno, author of Lived Experience from the Inside Out: Social and Political Philosophy in Edith Stein.

About the Author:

Alexious Meinong (1853–1920) was an Austrian philosopher whose work was influential on both early analytic and continental philosophy. A student of Franz Brentano, he worked in the field of descriptive psychology. His most important contribution to philosophy is his theory of objects.

John J. Drummond is the Robert Southwell, S.J. Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and the Humanities at Fordham University. He is the author of Husserlian Intentionality and Non-Foundational Realism: Noema and Object and Historical Dictionary of Husserl’s Philosophy, as well as numerous articles on phenomenology and the emotions.
