Husserl in a New Generation
September 15-17, 2017

Edmund Husserl (1859-1938), the founder of phenomenology, was one of the most influ­ential philosophers of the 20th century, one whose influence can be seen in almost every area of philosophical research. In his early work, most notably Logical Investigations, Husserl draws on his background in mathematics and psychology to address questions concerning meaning, truth, and cognition. His later “transcendental” phenomenology is a far-ranging investigation into the fundamental structures of conscious experience and their relevance to topics such as time-consciousness, intersubjectivity, and the nature of scientific inquiry. Among his later works, Ideas, Cartesian Meditations, and The Crisis of the European Sciences have been particularly widely read and translated. In recent decades, central aspects of Husserlian phenomenology have played an important role in the evolution of fields as diverse as sociology, education, cognitive science, and architecture. The aim of this conference was to revisit Husserl’s important contributions, highlighting their relevance to the questions that philosophy faces today.
