German philosopher, phenomenologist (from the Munich phenomenology school) and law theorist. In 1912 Reinach, together with Moritz Geiger and Alexander Pfänder founded the famous Jahrbuch für Philosophie und phänomenologische Forschung, with Edmund Husserl as main editor.
Besides his work in the area of phenomenology and philosophy in general, Reinach is credited for the development of a forerunner to the theory of speech acts by Austin and Searle: Die apriorischen Grundlagen des bürgerlichen Rechtes (The A Priori Foundations of Civil Law) is a systematic treatment of social acts as performative utterances and a priori foundations of civil law. Reinach's work was based mostly on Husserl's analysis of meaning in the Logical Investigations, but also on Daubert's criticism of it.
At the outbreak of World War I Reinach volunteered to join the army. After many battles and having received the Iron Cross, Reinach died outside Diksmuide in Flanders on 16 November 1917.
