  1. 1.

    The importance of reintroducing Husserl’s stance on this topic can be seen in the fact that today a somewhat similar position to that of his opponents can be found in Samuel Huntington’s questionable but highly influential work The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1996).

  2. 2.

    On the reception of Husserl’s ideas of The Crisis by Marcuse, see Exposito Ropero (2019).
