Intentionality and Transcendence
Closure and Openness in Husserl's Phenomenology
"The best book on intentionality and transcendence in Husserl that I have read. . . . It will undoubtedly become the standard reference work in the field."James R. Mensch, St. Francis Xavier University
Damian Byers describes the form Husserl gives to the problem of knowledgethe way this form influences the development of the phenomenological method, and the results of its application. In a very clear fashion, Byers presents Husserl's understanding of the roles of intentionality, idealism, temporalization, and kinesthesia in the constitution of knowledge. Drawing upon all of Husserl's major texts, he corrects many misapprehensions about Husserl's doctrines of intentionality and idealism. Byers argues that Husserl's transcendental phenomenology is both a philosophy of closure and control and a philosophy of openness and vulnerability.
Damian Byers is a Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, University of Melbourne.
