- 293 Downloads
Stefania Centrone’s book provides an in-depth analysis and interpretation of Edmund Husserl’s early work, from the publication of the Philosophy of Arithmetic (1891) to that of the Logical Investigations (1900/1901). The book consists of three long chapters, respectively discussing Husserl’s first book, the Philosophy of Arithmetic, the idea of pure logic in the Prolegomena, and the problem of the imaginary in mathematics, which was the topic of Husserl’s 1901 “Double Lecture” for the mathematical society in Göttingen.
