Cairns presents a plausible two-part, step by step, approach seemingly developed in Husserl’s “workshop” to transcendental phenomenology that is independent of culture and history, refines a concept of knowledge and its references to worldly things, encounters a difficulty, and resolves it through recognition of a non-worldly apodictic core of consciousness distinct from being in the real temporal, spatial, and causal world.
Keywords Husserl Cairns Reduction Transcendental Knowledge Science
Sciences (and non-scientific knowledge) differ in subject-matters, but all subject-matter is
one in the sense that each separate subject-matter is a part of, or essentially related to, the world. (Cairns (2012: 19). Cited provisionally by the original pagination) References
