Husserl�s Logical Investigations II

Term: Spring 2009

Subject Code: GPHI

Course Number: 6613

This seminar is the second of a two-semester seminar on Husserl's Logical Investigations. The first semester is recommended, but not required. We will pursue a detailed reading and analysis of Investigations V and VI, as well as consider a number of revisions to the VI Investigation that were written in the period after Ideas I (1913). The principal concern of this part of the course will be to understand how central, unresolved problems of the Logical Investigations, such as the nature of intentional consciousness, the idea of a descriptive psychology, the primacy of perception, and the phenomenological conception of evidence remained the driving force behind the development Husserl's phenomenological philosophy throughout his career.
