The Generative Principles of Phenomenology, Their Genesis, Development and Early Expansion
Edmund Husserl (1859–1938) represents a rather rare case in the history of Western philosophy. Indeed, we are here concerned with a thinker for whom philosophy constituted a true “vocation”. Indeed, it is not by chance that he makes such frequent reference to the “profession of the philosopher”, an expression that came into being spontaneously while he attended the lectures of Franz Brentano in Vienna, who actually performed a maieutic function of the Socratic type, bringing to the fore the profound interests of his disciple, a Jew from Prossnitz in Moravia, who had been a brilliant student of mathematics under the guidance of Karl Weierstrass in Berlin.
