Husserl as the Modern Plato? On Hopkins' Reading of Husserl

Reviewed: The Philosophy of Husserl, by Burt C. Hopkins. Mc-Gill-Queen’s University Press, 2010. 290 pp., pb. $22.95, ISBN-13: 9780773538238; hb. $95, ISBN-13: 978-0773538221. Burt Hopkins’s The Philosophy of Husserl presents a challenging and thoughtful elucidation of Husserl’s phenomenology that pays special attention to important methodological aspects of Husserl’s philosophy, and, thereby, to Husserl’s characterization of phenomenology as a pure and transcendental philosophy. Unlike other texts that attempt to elucidate Husserl’s philosophy, Hopkins carries out his project in an unusual fashion, by beginning with a consideration of the conflict between Plato and Aristotle regarding the meaning and status of the eide, and ending with a systematic critique of two of Husserl’s most fierce opponents, Heidegger and Derrida. This review essay gives an overview of Hopkins’s book and offers some critical remarks
