About this book


This short History of the Husserl-Archives offers a fascinating view on the foundation and development of this important research institute and of the Husserliana edition. Father Van Breda’s personal annotations, which are made public for the first time in English here, paint a captivating picture of the rescue of Husserl’s manuscripts and the foundation of the Archives shortly before the second world war. The overview of the further history of the Archives by Thomas Vongehr concentrates on the history of the editorial work and its reception. These two texts present not only a historical account but explain the scientific goals and tasks of the Husserl-Archives and its research.
