From the reviews:

"Karl Schuhmann’s anthology Selected Papers on Phenomenology represents an admirable contribution to the documentation and understanding of many of these mainstreams and byways of historical and conceptual influence. … In making these historical highways and byways of phenomenology available to a larger audience, Schumann has performed a valuable service; the clarity, precision and suggestiveness of the articles collected here will stand as testimony to his own depth of intellect and philosophical insight." (Paul M. Livingston, Grazer Philosophische Schudien, Vol. 70, 2005)
