Husserl’s Phenomenology of Existence

and the Problem of Meaning in Human Life

February 23 (Tuesday), 2016 at 4:00 pm

It is often supposed that, unlike later thinkers who are usually regarded as existential phenomenologists, for example, Heidegger and Sartre, Husserl posited a fundamental opposition between transcendental phenomenology and existential philosophy. On the other hand, texts recently published in Husserliana XLII, Grenzprobleme der Phänomenologie (2014), suggest that Husserl was not opposed but rather open to a certain kind of philosophy of existence. Addressing this apparent incongruity, the present paper provides an introduction to the problem of the relationship between phenomenology and philosophy of existence in the late 1920s and early 1930s, takes a new look at the break between Husserl and Heidegger in the 1920s, offers a reinterpretation of the tension between Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology and his philosophy of existence in the 1930s, analyzes selected exemplary aspects of Husserl’s phenomenology of existence in texts of Husserliana XLII, and provides a conclusion that clarifies the historical development from transcendental phenomenology to existential phenomenology after Husserl. Thus the paper examines the neglected aspects of Husserl’s approach to the problem of meaning in human life and indicates that his philosophy includes a phenomenology of existence.
