The Other Husserl The Horizons of Transcendental Phenomenology by Donn Welton

With provocations on every page, this book is a philosophical feast. The specialist will find familiar ingredients assembled here in a perspicuous and compelling way, while the nonspecialist will discover a Husserl whose philosophy is made of flesh and blood. -Journal of the History of Philosophy In this thorough study of the full body of his writings, Donn Welton uncovers a Husserl very different from the established view. Arguing against established interpretations, The Other Husserl traces Husserl's move from static to genetic phenomenology and uses accounts of perception, discourse, subjectivity, and world to elaborate the scope of his systematic phenomenology. This serious reflection on the meaning of phenomenology is the first book in English to outline in full Husserl's phenomenological method and to argue for its cogency. Welton's stimulating interpretation highlights Husserl's relevance for current philosophical debates.


In this significant work, Edmund Husserl, the founder of 20th-century phenomenology, a highly influential theory of knowledge, receives a thorough and excellent analysis. . . .This technical study is an important contribution to phenomenology . . .December 2001 * Choice *
