Husserl�s Logical Investigations I

Term: Fall 2008

Subject Code: GPHI

Course Number: 6507

This seminar is the first of a two-semester seminar on Husserl's Logical Investigations. We will pursue a detailed reading and analysis of the Prolegomena and Investigations I-IV. Of particular interest will be situating Husserl's discussion of a wide variety of themes, from psychologism to the philosophy of language and the foundations of mathematics, in the intellectual history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as an attempt to understand in what sense the Logical Investigations represent a "breakthrough" to phenomenology.
