Edmund Husserl (1859–1938) is regarded as the founder of transcendental phenomenology, one of the major traditions to emerge in twentieth-century philosophy. In this book Andrea Staiti unearths and examines the deep theoretical links between Husserl's phenomenology and the philosophical debates of his time, showing how his thought developed in response to the conflicting demands of Neo-Kantianism and life-philosophy. Drawing on the work of thinkers including Heinrich Rickert, Wilhelm Dilthey and Georg Simmel, as well as Husserl's writings on the natural and human sciences that are not available in English translation, Staiti illuminates a crucial chapter in the history of twentieth-century philosophy and enriches our understanding of Husserl's thought. His book will interest scholars and students of Husserl, phenomenology, and twentieth-century philosophy more generally.Read more

- Clarifies fundamental notions in transcendental phenomenology in accessible terms, allowing readers familiar with Kant's transcendental philosophy to connect Husserl's thought to the Kantian tradition
Reviews & endorsements
"Andrea Staiti's book presents an account of Husserl’s thought that does full justice to the richness of his contribution to the philosophical elucidation of life, nature, the cultural world, and history. It should greatly facilitate dialogue between phenomenology and other philosophical approaches to these topics."
Steven Crowell, Rice UniversitySee more reviews
"Staiti has written an original and ground-breaking book that shows mastery both of the primary sources and of current discussions of Husserl’s project and its enduring significance."
Dermot Moran, University College Dublin
