The Philosophy of Edmund Husserl
Gold medal winner of the 2008 Book of the Year Award in the category of Philosophy, presented by ForeWord magazine.
Edmund Husserl (1859-1938), known as the founder of the phenomenological movement, was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. A prolific scholar, he explored an enormous landscape of philosophical subjects, including philosophy of math, logic, theory of meaning, theory of consciousness and intentionality, and ontology in addition to phenomenology.
This deeply insightful book traces the development of Husserl’s thought from his earliest investigations in philosophy—informed by his work as a mathematician—to his publication of Ideas in 1913. Jitendra N. Mohanty, an internationally renowned Husserl scholar, presents a masterful study that illuminates Husserl’s central concerns and provides a definitive assessment of the first phases of the philosopher’s career.
Jitendra N. Mohanty has taught philosophy in India, the United States, and Germany, and has written several highly regarded books on Edmund Husserl. He lives in Ambler, PA.
