'Inner Life and Transcendental Philosophy' explores the interconnection between two difficult and ambiguous concepts from Husserl's later writings: "inwardness" (Innerlichkeit) and "instreaming" (Einströmen). "Inwardness" for Husserl refers not to some closed off sanctum or subjective point of observation, but a developed sensitivity to the life and movement of concepts, one that can be cultivated as the result of phenomenological reflection. "Instreaming" refers to the effect, or influence that knowledge of the transcendental dimension of experience has on everyday, non-transcendental life thanks to this cultivated inwardness. The argument of this paper is that Husserl's discussion of the place, significance, and impact of transcendental philosophy represents a nuancedand sophisticated assessment of our dependency on concepts, and a healthy appreciation of the limits of our ability to govern this dependency with the aid of philosophy, even'transcendental' philosophy
