The Concept of Lebenswelt from Husserl’s Philosophy of Arithmetic to His Crisis

  • Bianca Maria d’Ippolito
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 80)


The concept of Lebenswelt represents the main theme of The Crisis of European Sciences.1 This last work published by Husserl, brings together the theoretical strands that had emerged during the career of the Judeo-Christian philosopher, and weaves them into an original fabric. The objective fields explored in the lengthy Husserlian analysis—space, time, consciousness in its surface and hidden layers, the body, otherness—are now re-united in a new arrangement. The re-unfurling of conceptual moments is spurred by an ethical-political interest, by the restless questioning of the value and meaning of science and philosophy in the tragic era of the irrationality of power.
