In Husserl on Ethics and Intersubjectivity, Janet Donohoe offers a compelling look into Husserl’s shift from a "static" to a "genetic" approach in his analysis of consciousness. Rather than view consciousness as an abstract unity, Husserl began investigating consciousness by taking into account the individual’s lived experiences.
Engaging critics from contemporary analytic schools to third-generation phenomenologists, Donohoe shows that they often do not do justice to the breadth of Husserl’s thoughts. In separate chapters Donohoe elucidates the relevance of Husserl’s later genetic phenomenology to his work on time consciousness, intersubjectivity, and ethical issues. This much-needed synthesis of Husserl’s methodologies will be of interest to Husserl scholars, phenomenologists, and philosophers from both Continental and analytic schools.

What People are Saying About This
"A very different Husserl emerges from this study of the 'genetic' phase of his phenomenology. It not only complements the 'static' approach guided so far only by the rules of intentionality. It also significantly corrects the perceived one-sidedness in the way Husserl viewed the problems of ego, intersubjectivity, and ethical and historical dimensions. This book opens the once-closed minds of Husserl scholars to the possibility that Husserl can actually accommodate both the temporally and the culturally Other."
