Husserl’s Transcendental Phenomenology and History

  • Elisabeth Ströker
Part of the Phaenomenologica book series (PHAE, volume 95)


Husserl’s “transcendental phenomenology and history” is not a new subject, but it is a young one. Only in the last decade have Husserl scholars given it greater attention. For a long time it may have seemed that Husserl’s philosophy had nothing to do with history, that history could not be its subject, since his transcendental phenomenology was concerned primarily with insights into general structures and ultimately into the essential structures of transcendental subjectivity and its world- constituting achievements.
