Coming from what is arguably the most productive period of Husserl's l ife, this volume offers the reader a first translation into English of Husserl's renowned lectures on 'passive synthesis', given between 192 0 and 1926. These lectures are the first extensive application of Huss erl's newly developed genetic phenomenology to perceptual experience a nd to the way in which it is connected to judgments and cognition. The y include an historical reflection on the crisis of contemporary thoug ht and human spirit, provide an archaeology of experience by questioni ng back into sedimented layers of meaning, and sketch the genealogy of judgment in 'active synthesis'.
