The philosophy of Edmund Husserl: A historical development (review)

Journal of the History of Philosophy 47 (2):pp. 321-322 (2009)
That this comprehensive study of the transformations undergone by Husserl's thought during his formative years in Halle and Göttingen is a remarkably impressive work of scholarship will not surprise those familiar with the work of J. N. Mohanty, a highly-regarded advocate of transcendental phenomenology in his own right. The surprise that awaits readers, even those familiar with Mohanty's distinguished body of work, is instead a result of the genre chosen for his latest—and, for this reader, most impressive—book to date.Whereas Mohanty's earlier works on Husserl focus upon specific philosophical topics, contrasting Husserl's mature philosophy with those of his critics, the approach here is chronological. It begins with a consideration of the problems motivating Philosophie der Arithmetik and the projected but never completed second volume of that work, moves on to a consideration of Husserl's rejection of that early position as psychologistic and a study of the texts that led to his Logical Investigations , and then to the essays, manuscripts, and lecture courses that develop the transcendental phenomenology famously advanced in Ideas I .
