The Husserl Page
Update: 23 Feb 2017
Aim:  To provide easy access to those net resources pertaining to the life and work of the 20th century philosopher, Edmund Husserl.
  Life and Work:   Links:

The aim of The Husserl Page, which in reality consists of many distinct pages, is twofold. First, this site provides a series of originally created bibliographic and informational pages relevant for research into Husserl's philosophy and its development.  Second, this site seeks to supply an exhaustive and up-to-date listing of externally produced Internet sites relevant for research into the life and philosophy of Edmund Husserl.  To get a sense of the structure of this site and its contents, please consult the site map. This page catalogs all the web pages internal to this site and indicates their placement in the overal structure. 
    Since nowhere in these pages will you find a synopsis, summary, or other such treatise on Husserl's phenomenology, you may wish to jump to the chronological bibliography of Husserl's writings and search for the various "introductions" to phenomenology by Husserl, himself. If you are looking for such a text, Husserl's article on phenomenology which he wrote for the Encyclopaedia Britannica stands as one of the best of his introductions. I recommend particularly looking into volume 6 of the Husserliana Collected Works series, Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger. ("Draft D," in particular, is a good place to begin.) The article was finished in late 1927 and published (in a heavily edited and distorted version) in the 14th ed. of The Encyclopaedia Britannica. Husserl intended two goals with the publication of this essay. First, he meant to provide a brief and readable introduction to the philosophy he founded. Second, he meant the article to be a joint expression of the basic character of phenomenology by himself and Martin Heidegger. The collaboration failed, however, and Heidegger's contributions were not ultimately incorporated into the article submitted for publication. Hence, Husserl's article (and the collaborating documents in the Husserliana volume mentioned) can serve both as an introduction to Husserlian phenomenology and as a platform by which to examine differences between the Husserlian and Heideggerian philosophies.


Conference: Husserl in a New Generation[new]
Edmund Husserl (1859-1938), the founder of phenomenology, was one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century, one whose influence can be seen in almost every area of philosophical research. In his early work, most notably Logical Investigations, Husserl draws on his background in mathematics and psychology to address questions concerning meaning, truth, and cognition.  His later “transcendental” phenomenology is a far-ranging investigation into the fundamental structures of conscious experience and their relevance to topics such as time-consciousness, intersubjectivity, and the nature of scientific inquiry.  Among his later works, Ideas, Cartesian Meditations, and The Crisis of the European Sciences have been particularly widely read and translated.  In recent decades, central aspects of Husserlian phenomenology have played an important role in the evolution of fields as diverse as sociology, education, cognitive science, and architecture. The aim of this conference is to revisit Husserl’s important contributions, highlighting their relevance to the questions that philosophy faces today.
