Part of the SpringerBriefs in Philosophy book series (BRIEFSPHILOSOPH)


This chapter (1) provides an overview of the unifying interpretation of Husserl, summarizing the various concepts that have been formalized in a common framework and giving readings of several long passages that illustrate this unification; (2) considers how the formalism could be extended to other domains of “constitutive phenomenology”; (3) applies the formalism to additional concepts in Husserlian phenomenology (e.g. the distinction between perfect and imperfect evidence); (4) describes the relevance of this framework to efforts to naturalize phenomenology, and in particular to dynamical systems and Bayesian approaches to cognitive science; and (5) considers further ways this interpretation could be applied, e.g. to literature and anthropology.
