Historical Dictionary of Husserl's Philosophy Hardback
Part of the Historical Dictionaries of Religions, Philosophies, and Movements Series series
Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) is widely regarded as the founding figure of the philosophical movement of 'phenomenology.' Husserl's philosophical program was both embraced and rejected by many, but in either case, his ideas set the stage for and exercised an enormous influence on the development of much of the philosophy that followed.
In particular, his thought provides the backdrop and impetus for movements such as existentialism, hermeneutics, and deconstruction.
Also, because of his career-long concerns with logic and mathematics, there are many points of contact between Husserl's phenomenology and so-called 'analytical philosophy,' further cementing study of Husserl's thought across the philosophical spectrum.
