About this product
- DescriptionThis volume is the first book-length analysis of the problematic concept of the 'horizon' in Edmund Husserl's phemelogy, as well as in phemelogy generally. A recent arrival on the conceptual scene, the horizon still eludes robust definition. The author shows in this authoritative exploration of the topic that Husserl, the originator of phemelogy, placed the tion of the horizon at the centre of philosophical enquiry. He also demonstrates the rightful centrality of the concept of the horizon, all too often viewed as an imprecise metaphor of tangential significance. His systematic analysis deploys both early and late work by Husserl, as well as hitherto unpublished manuscripts. Opening out the question to include that of the origins of the horizon, the book explores the horizon as philosophical theme or tion, as a figure of intentionality, and as a signification of one's consciousness of the world-our 'world-horizon'. It argues that the central philosophical significance of the problematic of the horizon makes itself apparent in realizing how this problematic enriches our philosophical understanding of subjectivity. Systematic, thorough, and revealing, this study of the significance of a core concept in phemelogy will be relevant t only to the phemelogical community, but also to anyone interested in the intersections of phemelogy and other philosophical traditions, such as hermeneutics and pragmatism.
