The Max Scheler Society of North America (MSSNA) held its biannual meeting in conjunction with the meeting of the Central Division of the American Philosophical Association, February 17-20, 2010, at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.

The intent of the society and the meeting was to foster a critical discussion of Max Scheler’s work and its broader philosophical significance, both among North American philosophers, and among the international community of philosophers throughout the world. This meeting was dedicated to the work and memory of Manfred S. Frings. A session of the meeting was devoted to his work. One session was devoted to papers dealing in some respect with the thought of Dr. Frings.
