Pages 262 - 269



Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) studied philosophy under Franz Brentano and was professor of philosophy in Göttingen and Freiburg. As founder of the school of phenomenology he established new standards in philosophy and counts as one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. His major works are Logische Untersuchungen (1900-1901), Ideen I (1913), Formale und transzendentale Logik (1928), and Meditations cartesiennes (1931). A. Reinach, R. Ingarden, and H. Conrad-Martius are Husserl’s students, but he also greatly influenced several independent thinkers like M. Heidegger, M. Scheler or N. Hartmann. When he announced the program of ‘transcendental idealism’, many of his followers turned away, much to his disappointment.
