Edmund Husserl's classic is a must read for everyone interested in Mind in Life, phenomenology and/or modern philosophy. The translation by Boyce Gibson is very good and very readable. The inclusion of the original German terminology does help a lot to distinguish between intentions that are hard to translate into English.

I had a serious thirst for understanding Husserl, Heidegger's historical influence, and I'm extremely glad I have this chance to understand the unique and foundational perspective he contributed to 20th century philosophy and human self-understanding. One gets the impression from the debate that existed that there was a foundational difference, but reading this book has made it clear to me that Husserl was only disappointed in Heidegger because he viewed his "anthropological" dissertation as a distraction from his own unique psychological attitude and perspective. Husserl's "idealist" point of view is not only important for its own value, but for the light it shines on topics like dualism, empiricism, Descartes, Kant, and the history of modern philosophy.

Format: Paperback
very nice edition of this book. helpful intro by moran. funny that the translator's intro, preserved from the original 1931 edition, so much praises and thanks his proofreader. this edition appears to be a scan of that original publication which was not thoroughly proofread (or even spellchecked!) for scanning errors before being converted to the new publication. they didn't even correct the page number references in husserl's footnotes (when he refers to earlier sections) to this repaginated edition! understandable - who has time to read such a book now? precisely why (and other reasons) it should be read now.

HUSSERL, PONTY, AND BEAUFRET: THE THREE GIANTS OF POST-MODERN ERA:

Edmund Husserl is considered the father of phenomenology, and also as a major contributor to the substrate of post- modern philosophy. Without a doubt, his thought in “Ideas” is profoundly evident as the structure for much of Heidegger’s, Ponty’s, and Beaufret’s thought. Therefore, any student of post-modern thought will find this manuscript absolutely essential to read and assimilate. Assimilating the material may take some doing. Husserl is difficult; but not impossible. He is just extremely detailed, and you must carefully track his concepts and their use.

Husserl tells us that the study of “Being” cannot begin until after the pure-experience work of describing “modalities-of-being”. Then the self may transition to the study of “being”. To assist the reader, I will give you the “4” modalities of his procedure. Keep these in mind as you read: 1. the “primordial-modality” of “epoche” (suspension of conceptualization); 2. The remembrance-modality of the “noetic”; 3. The imaginative-modality of the “eidetic”; and 4. The signifying-modality of the “doxic”.
The self must work “descriptively” through the first three modalities, and then work through a transformation in the fourth modality of the “doxic”. The doxa-modality asks the self to work through “recollection and subtracting” in order to arrive at the “proto-doxa” that have been present all along. These “proto-doxa” consist of the core-noema resulting from the on-going interrogation of the self from an existential stand-point. Through a process of negating the modality-content in previous moments, the self can arrive at the pure doxa content. The noematic-object passes through negation of modality-content to become pure-noema-character.
