Edmund Husserl Quotes


25 Edmund Husserl quotes:



"To begin with, we put the proposition: pure phenomenology is the science of pure consciousness."
"A new fundamental science, pure phenomenology, has developed within philosophy: This is a science of a thoroughly new type and endless scope."
"All philosophical disciplines are rooted in pure phenomenology, through whose development, and through it alone, they obtain their proper force."
"At the lowest cognitive level, they are processes of experiencing, or, to speak more generally, processes of intuiting that grasp the object in the original."
"Experience by itself is not science."
"Immanent and transcendent experience are nevertheless connected in a remarkable way: by a change in attitude, we can pass from the one to the other."
"In a few decades of reconstruction, even the mathematical natural sciences, the ancient archetypes of theoretical perfection, have changed habit completely!"
"In all the areas within which the spiritual life of humanity is at work, the historical epoch wherein fate has placed us is an epoch of stupendous happenings."
"It just is nothing foreign to consciousness at all that could present itself to consciousness through the mediation of phenomena different from the liking itself; to like is intrinsically to be conscious."
"Natural objects, for example, must be experienced before any theorizing about them can occur."
"Philosophers, as things now stand, are all too fond of offering criticism from on high instead of studying and understanding things from within."
"Psychologically experienced consciousness is therefore no longer pure consciousness; construed Objectively in this way, consciousness itself becomes something transcendent, becomes an event in that spatial world which appears, by virtue of consciousness, to be transcendent."
"Psychology, on the other hand, is science of psychic Nature and, therefore, of consciousness as Nature or as real event in the spatiotemporal world."
"Pure phenomenology claims to be the science of pure phenomena. This concept of the phenomenon, which was developed under various names as early as the eighteenth century without being clarified, is what we shall have to deal with first of all."
"So far as their own phenomenal content is concerned, they do not suffer in any way when believing in Objective actuality is put out of play."
"Something similar is still true of the courses followed by manifold intuitions which together make up the unity of one continuous consciousness of one and the same object."
"The actuality of all of material Nature is therefore kept out of action and that of all corporeality along with it, including the actuality of my body, the body of the cognizing subject."
"The ideal of a pure phenomenology will be perfected only by answering this question; pure phenomenology is to be separated sharply from psychology at large and, specifically, from the descriptive psychology of the phenomena of consciousness."
"To every object there correspond an ideally closed system of truths that are true of it and, on the other hand, an ideal system of possible cognitive processes by virtue of which the object and the truths about it would be given to any cognitive subject."
"We would be in a nasty position indeed if empirical science were the only kind of science possible."
