    Eventually Husserl was asked to become the ordentlicher professor (university professor) at the University of Freiburg.

  • "The Crisis of European Science and Transcendental Phenomenology"

    "The Crisis of European Science and Transcendental Phenomenology"
    Husserl's last piece of work before passing, so much so it was never actually finished. Arguably one of his largest contributions towards the philosophy of science, it lasts as an inspiration and influence on other philosophers. The book was Husserl's attempt to unite the ties between phenomenology and existentialism. Husserl, E. (2000).
