World and Life-World

Aspects of the Philosophy of Edmund Husserl


Balazs Mezei

The authors investigates in depth the development of two central notions in Edmund Husserl's philosophy: the notion of world and life-world. He considers some of the difficulties given in these concepts, evaluates criticism on Husserlian phenomenology and, with reference to the work of Jan Patocka, he offers an outline of a new, critical reading of the method of Husserl's epoche.
Contents: The concept of world in Husserl's philosophy - Husserl's concept of life-world and its relation to his concept of world - Outline for a critic of Husserl's notion of world - Attempt at an ultimate philosophical justification of the real world.
