Husserl’s Conceptions of Formal Mathematics

- Husserl’s Conceptions of Formal Mathematics Edmund Husserl’s conception of mathematics was a unique blend of Platonist and formalist ideas. He believed that mathematics had reached a mixed state combining Platonic and formal elements and that both were important for the pursuit of the sciences, as well as for each other. However, he seemed to believe that only the Platonic aspects had significance for his science of phenomenology. Because of the significance of the distinction between these two types of mathematics, I will always use one of the adjectives “material” or “formal” when discussing any branch of mathematics, unless I specifically mean to include both....   [tags: Edmund Husserl Math]

Recreation of the Ideas of Edmund Husserl

- The purpose of this paper is to provide a recreation of the ideas held by Edmund Husserl post-1890 and then to elucidate them in light of modern understanding. His greatest contributions of phenomenology and consciousness as a directed event will be the focus and offer guidance for Husserl’s uncovering of the ego as not only a state of being separate of the environment but also a state of immersion within the environment. We begin by explaining what the phenomenological attitude is not. This method contrasts with the popular framework, advocated by Husserl himself in his earlier works, of psychologism....   [tags: Consciousness, Phenomena. Post-1980]

A Brief Survey of the Phenomenology of Husserl and Heidegger

- A Brief Survey of the Phenomenology of Husserl and Heidegger Introduction In general terms, phenomenology is a philosophy of experience. It attempts to understand how meaning is made in human experience, and it sees our lived experience of the world as the foundation of meaning. For phenomenology, how the speaking or writing subject uses language is primary both because it is how we experience its rules and conventions, in their use, and because this is the source of semantic innovation. New meaning, novelty in the world, and the possibility of a future different from the past are some of phenomenology's defining values....   [tags: Philosophy]

Husserl, Carnap, Heidegger, and Wittgenstein

- Husserl, Carnap, Heidegger, and Wittgenstein ABSTRACT: Phenomenology and logical positivism both subscribed to an empirical-verifiability criterion of mental or linguistic meaning. The acceptance of this criterion confronted them with the same problem: how to understand the Other as a subject with his own experience, if the existence and nature of the Other's experiences cannot be verified. Husserl tackled this problem in the Cartesian Meditations, but he could not reconcile the verifiability criterion with understanding the Other's feelings and sensations....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

Husserl y la Crisis de la Cultura

- Husserl y la Crisis de la Cultura ABSTRACT: The topic of the crisis of culture has been common among philosophers whose thought developed during the beginning of the 20th century, and especially among those who lived through the hard times of the interwar period.

A Phhenomenological Experience Of Subjectivity

- A Phenomenological Experience of Subjectivity In philosophy, there is a very strong and reoccurring problem of how we can know whether or not other people have minds like our own. One of the premises on which this question lies is that we view other people solely as objects in the world, consequently we have no access to their consciousness. Husserl rejects this premise. In the Fifth Meditation of Cartesian Meditations, he explains that in his phenomenological investigation of the natural attitude, we also experience the Other as a subject in the world....   [tags: Consciousness, Philosophy of mind, Edmund Husserl]

Methodology Of Phenomenology

- Phenomenological Methodologies Phenomenology is essentially the qualitative approach to understanding the human experience from a psychological perspective. Phenomenology and humanistic psychology are often identified as less inclined to place individuals into classic categories or groupings, as other psychology methodologies have been known to do (Schneider, Pierson & Bugental, 2015). Phenomenological research as defined by Husserl and Heidegger is focused on the human experience and the relationship between being fully human and the lived experience associated within (Schneider et al., 2015)....   [tags: Edmund Husserl, Phenomenology, Scientific method]

The Origin of Judgment

- The Origin of Judgment Introduction The guiding thesis of Experience and Judgment is that logic demands a foundational theory of experience, which at the lowest level is described as prepredicative or prelinguistic.1 Edmund Husserl pursues within that text a phenomenological elucidation of the origin of judgment in order that he might clarify the essence of the predicative judgment. He does so in the belief that an investigation into the form of prepredicative experience will show it to be the ground of the structure of predicative thought, and thus the origin of general, conceptual thought....   [tags: Judgment Edmund Husserl Essays]
