This book makes available to the English reader nearly all of the shorter philosophical works, published or unpublished, that Husserl produced on the way to the phenomenological breakthrough recorded in his Logical Investigations of 1900-1901. Here one sees Husserl's method emerging step by step, and such crucial substantive conclusions as that concerning the nature of Ideal entities and the status the intentional 'relation' and its 'objects'. Husserl's literary encounters with many of the leading thinkers of his day illuminates both the context and the content of his thought. Many of the groundbreaking analyses provided in these texts were never again to be given the thorough expositions found in these early writings.
Early Writings in the Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics is essential reading for students of Husserl and all those who enquire into the nature of mathematical and logical knowledge.

From the Publisher
'... prepared in close collaboration with the Husserl Archive in Louvain. It is well designed, and there is no question about the scholarly value of this translation. Moreover, the book should serve as an excellent entrance point into Husserl's philosophy of mathematics...'
Philosophia Mathematica, 9:2 (2001)
