By the summer of 1913, Husserl had already completed revisions of the Prolegomena to Pure Logic and the first five Investigations for a new edition of his Logical Investigations. The intervening years had seen considerable development in Husserl’s thought, so he attempted to compromise between a merely mechanical reproduction of the original edition and a complete rewriting from the newly attained standpoint of his transcendental phenomenology. The compromise worked fairly well until Husserl came to the Sixth Investigation, “Elements of a Phenomenological Clarification of Knowledge.” The texts collected in the volume under review were produced during the second half of 1913 and reflect Husserl’s attempts at compromise. A companion volume is forthcoming which will contain his efforts, in late 1913 and early 1914, to write an entirely new version. The excellent Editor’s Introduction explains the chronology of Husserl’s failure. In 1913 a truncated second edition appeared without the Sixth Investigation, and in 1921, yielding to pressure from Heidegger and others, Husserl brought out a second edition of the Sixth Investigation which included no trace of his earlier revisions.
