Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) has secured a place in the history of Western thought as one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. As the principal architect of phenomenology, he inaugurated a method and conceptual framework that advances inquiries in the fields of logic, epistemology, ontology, ethics, and the philosophy of history. In Edmund Husserl's Phenomenology, Joseph J. Kockelmans provides the reader with a biographical sketch and an overview of the salient features of Husserl's thought. Kockelmans focuses on the essay for the Encyclopedia Britannica of 1928, Husserl's most important effort to articulate the aims of phenomenology for a more general audience. Included are Husserl's text - in the original German and in English translation on facing pages - a synopsis, and an extensive commentary that relates Husserl's work as a whole to the essay for the Encyclopedia. Edmund Husserl's Phenomenology is recommended for graduate courses inphilosophy and psychology and for scholars of other disciplines interested inthe roots of phenomenology and contemporary continental philosophy.
