Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 40)


In modern thought, attempts at a resolution of the problem of knowledge of the outer world follow a parallelism that alternatively emphasizes subject and object, with a growing “deviation” in this thought towards phenomenalism. Thus, knowledge of the world has become a problem for empiricism. But stressing of the opposite aspect, that of the subject — as does idealism — would also mean the adoption of a unilateral position.
