Overview

The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology, Husserl's last great work, is important both for its content and for the influence it has had on other philosophers. In this book, which remained unfinished at his death, Husserl attempts to forge a union between phenomenology and existentialism.

Husserl provides not only a history of philosophy but a philosophy of history. As he says in Part I, "The genuine spiritual struggles of European humanity as such take the form of struggles between the philosophies, that is, between the skeptical philosophies—or nonphilosophies, which retain the word but not the task—and the actual and still vital philosophies. But the vitality of the latter consists in the fact that they are struggling for their true and genuine meaning and thus for the meaning of a genuine humanity."

This is Husserl's answer to Heidegger and his retreat from Husserl's phenomenology and into an irrational or pure ontology. Although Heidegger's retreat away from science and into a pragmatic existentialism is what the book tries to convey, it is also a great interprtation of the antagonism between the social or geistgewissen and natural or wissen distinction of the sciences much evident in German philosophy in the latter part of the twentieth century.Husserl is not only abridge between the two but is also a possible link to the analytic Anglo- American and continental traditions in western philosophy. All in all a great read if dense ,but wortwhile if your'e up to this sort of subject.
