    Best introduction I know of to Husserl Also excellent if you like myself want to brush up half forgotten knowledge Clearheaded author, good pedagogue, with firmly held opinions, but not opinionated.

  2. Z. Zhang Z. Zhang says:

    John Drummond recommends this book as very clear, with both the development and overall unity of Husserl s thought effectively clarified Personally I find Drummond s review no exaggeration at all, and I think for any beginning reader who wishes to grasp Husserl s ideas as a unified, logically coherent, system, this introduction to Husserl is highly recommendable.What has troubled me up to now is the so called transcedential turn in Husserl s later writings, which, according to some critics, has rendered Husserl s philosophical system rather incoherent I secretly believe that there must a reliable account to explain this seeming incohenece, if for no other reason than that Husserl himself is a very logical thinker in the most strict sense and unable to comprehend Husserl s original works at the present stage, as I am largely a layman in philosophy, I find Zahavi s introduction a very useful guide in this respect His writing, indeed, is very clear I have read Moran s book entitled Introduction to Phenomenology , and if I were to make a comparison, Zahavi s presentation of Husserl is clear cut, logically coherent, and intelligible This, I think, is largely due to Zahavi s research on Husserl s unpublished manuscripts, as well as his published works.

    I can recommend this to anyone wanting an overview of Husserl s work with some historical context Zahavi offers a highly readable account that is concise and well laid out, while discussing other critical viewpoints and apparent inconsistencies Overall impressively transparent and concise making it suitable for the beginner, and penetretive enough to make it a worthwhile read.

    There might be other books out there that give a specific subject e.g the mind and cognitive science a phenomenological treatment, but Zahavi s contribution here is unique in that it helps you gain an understanding of phenomenology as it starts to depart from empiricism and a naturalistic framework This is not an accidental feature of the text, Zahavi shows that he understands that most of his audience are naturalists by disposition and or training, and takes pains to point out the limits of that worldview The book is really dense and after reading it twice, I still had to jump back and forth between chapters to make sure I understood what it said, but as a former naturalist in the narrow sense, I have to say this was an incredibly rewarding exercise and Zahavi has been what Hume was to Kant And if you ve been trained in analytic philosophy empiricism, but have been curious to know what these folks on the other side of the continent are talking about, this is most definitely the place to begin.

    In _Husserl s Phenomenology_ Zahavi has really blown me away with how much he could fit into such a short amount of space with such clarity This is, without a doubt, the best slim volume written on Husserl to date.

    Decent book, read it for a class and it was a little tricky a times.

Husserl's Phenomenology (Cultural Memory in the Present) It is commonly believed that Edmund Husserl , well known as the founder of phenomenology and as the teacher of Heidegger, was unable to free himself from the framework of a classical metaphysics of subjectivity Supposedly, he never abandoned the view that the world and the Other are constituted by a pure transcendental subject, and his thinking in consequence remains Cartesian, idealistic, and solipsistic The continuing publication of Husserl s manuscripts has made it necessary to revise such an interpretation Drawing upon both Husserl s published works and posthumous material, Husserl s Phenomenology incorporates the results of the most recent Husserl research It is divided into three parts, roughly following the chronological development of Husserl s thought, from his early analyses of logic and intentionality, through his mature transcendental philosophical analyses of reduction and constitution, to his late analyses of intersubjectivity and lifeworld It can consequently serve as a concise and updated introduction to his thinking
