إن من الظلم أن نختزل فكراً شمولياً معرفياً كالفينومينولوجيا في معنى اللفظة فقط , كتب صديقي علي تويتر بأنه قرأ سطرين علي الويكيبيديا عن معنى هذه الكلمة وهذا الفكر الفلسفي , لكن لا أظنه إستفاد شيئاً من وراء ذلك , ليست هنالك فائدة إلا التباهي من وراء هكذا معلومة , البعض يعد قراءة كتب كهذه ترفاً فكرياً إلا أنها تساعد في بناء كثير من المفاهيم , كثير من الرؤى إضافة للمعرفة كمعرفة بحد ذاتها

Husserl's lectures were clear and concise with examples that were both common and well articulated. As with most of phenomenology some lesson in German is needed as many of the words created by Husserl and other phenomenologists ...more

I read this book as part of an Honors Lit Theory class. This class was so fun, like someone took a can opener to my brains, lifted out the contents, and lovingly rearranged my consciousness. I remember the portion about Hiedegger, Husserl and others and it was like a rapid fire assault to my brain waves and ideas were presented, turned around , linked, and then resignified. I never expected it, but one theory class and I was turned on to a whole new way of looking at reality. Thanks to excellent ...more

Edmund Gustav Albrecht Husserl was a philosopher who is deemed the founder of phenomenology. He broke with the positivist orientation of the science and philosophy of his day, believing that experience is the source of all knowledge, while at the same time he elaborated critiques of psychologism and historicism.

Born into a Moravian Jewish family, he was baptized as a Lutheran in 1887. Husserl stud
