Husserl's Legacy : Phenomenology, Metaphysics, and Transcendental Philosophy Hardback
Dan Zahavi offers an in-depth and up to date analysis of central and contested aspects of the philosophy of Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology.
What is ultimately at stake in Husserl's phenomenological analyses?
Are they primarily to be understood as investigations of consciousness, and if so, must they be classified as psychological contributions of some sort?
If Husserl is engaged in a transcendental philosophical project, is phenomenologicaltranscendental philosophy then distinctive in some way, and what kind of metaphysical import, if any, might it have?
Phenomenology, metaphysics, and transcendental philosophy offers an interpretation of the more overarching aims and ambitions of Husserlian phenomenology and engages with some of the mostcontested and debated questions in phenomenology.
Central to its interpretative efforts is the attempt to understand Husserl's transcendental idealism.
Zahavi argues that Husserl was not a sophisticated introspectionist, not a phenomenalist, nor an internalist, not a quietist when it comes to metaphysical issues, and not opposed to all forms of naturalism.
Phenomenology, metaphysics, and transcendental philosophy argues that Husserl's phenomenology is as much about the world as it isabout consciousness, and that a proper grasp of Husserl's transcendental idealism reveals the fundamental importance of facticity and intersubjectivity.
