    The Phantasy, Image Consciousness, and Memory

    Husserls works were comprised into what is called the Husserliana. "Phantasy, Image Consciousness, and Memory" is an english translation of some of his more important work from the Husserliana by John B. Brough. In it, Husserl discusses his ideas on the inner consciousness and how it relates to the science of phenomena. Husserl, Edmund., and John B. Brough.

  • Tipping The Brink

    One of Husserls last contributions to philosophy was his work titled "The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology". It is written during a time of anti-semitism in Germany where he was discriminated as a Jew. He describes the need for philosophy at such a time when he believed it was needed most based on the events that were unfolding in Europe. It became one of the most influential works in his life, and was published 3 years before his death.
  • The Legacy That Remains

    Husserl died at the age of 79 in Germany. After he died, his works were collected and so began the Husserliana; a series of Husserls work. It was possible through Herman Van Breda, who was a philosopher who rescued Husserls manuscripts after his death. The collection allows extended studies of his work and it includes the fundamentals to his methods within phenomenology. His work has coined him as the "Father of Phenomenology" because of his immense contributions to philosophy.
