5.0 out of 5 stars The Eroticization of the Transcendental Ego, 13 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Essential Husserl: Basic Writings in Transcendental Phenomenology (Studies in Continental Thought) (Paperback)
This collection is truly a publishing event. What is especially remarkable is that it contains 'essential writing' that has been for many years suppressed. It is a little known fact that late in his career Husserl moved from the consideration of the transcendental ego to a pheneomenology of that ego's 'bodified' being. Institutional powers-that-be were wary of disclosing this 'turn' due to the blatant homo-eroticism present in Husserl's analysis. Welton has risked alienating himself from the academic community, and should be praised for his courage and commitment to unearthing the truth, whatever that might be. Moreover, included in this collection is a fine introduction by Welton which introduces the reader to the political infighting which surrounded the publication of this text and nearly tore the community of Husserl scholars asunder. A daring, timely introduction to Husserl's work. I recommend this book unreservedly.
