Psychologism and Description in Husserl’s Phenomenology

  • Tomas Sodeika
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 34)

Abstract

The evolution of Edmund Husserl’s views is a complicated tangle of psychologistic and antipsychologistic themes. With the main task of philosophy being considered by him to be that of laying the foundations for science, the founder of phenomenology was well aware of the closeness of his doctrine to psychology, and he was concerned with the elucidation of the nature of this closeness during the whole of his scholarly career.
