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 mathematics, 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 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.
"No other scholars come close to J.N Mohanty in the depth of their insights or their mastery of Husserl's works. This is Mohanty's "summa, "his definitive attempt to figure Husserl out once and for all. The result is a great success, a deeply insightful reading of one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century."--David Carr, Emory University
