Transcendental phenomenology?

Rudolf Bernet(Husserl-Archives, KU Leuven)

pp. 115-133


Investigating the nature of the phenomenological reduction to phenomena and the limits of Husserl's transcendental phenomenology, this article pleads in favor of an interrogative, intuitive, and world-oriented style of phenomenological research. Such a phenomenology is required by phenomena that do not lend themselves to an analysis in terms of a constituting transcendental ego and of an eidetic science directed at the apodictically necessary structures of a pure consciousness. The phenomenological method must thus allow, besides a transcendental and eidetic phenomenological science, for a quasi-empirical phenomenology of events and historical traditions.
