Edmund Husserl on the Applicability of Formal Geometry

In Emily Carson & Renate Huber (eds.), Intuition and the Axiomatic Method. Springer. pp. 67-85 (2006)
In this paper, I reconstruct Edmund Husserl's view on the relationship between formal inquiry and the life-world, using the example of formal geometry. I first outline Husserl's account of geometry and then argue that he believed that the applicability of formal geometry to intuitive space (the space of everyday-experience) guarantees the conceptual continuity between different notions of space.
