An Introduction to Husserl's Phenomenology

Jan Patočka

Patočka's celebrated Introduction is not an "introduction" in the ordinary sense of the term. Patocka ranges over the whole of Husserl's output, from the Philosophy of Arithmetic to The Crisis of the European Sciences, and traces the evolution of all the central issues of Husserlian phenomenology—intentionality, categorical intuition, temporality, the subject body, the concrete a priori, and transcendental subjectivity. Rather than attempt to merely give a tour of Husserl's workshop, Patočka is himself hard at work on Husserl's problems.

"This enormously readable translation of Jan Patočka's An Introduction of Husserl's Phenomenology opens access for English readers to the Czech thinker's famously original alternative to Husserl's basic thrust, the phenomenology of the body included, and thereby the philosophical source of easily the most phenomenological country on earth."
