(p.1) Introduction
The Problem of Genesis in Husserl's Philosophy
University of Chicago Press

The unity of the problem of genesis has only been differentiated in its development into several themes or loci that Husserl seems to have put off or dissimulated endlessly. Husserl had believed at the beginning of his career with an intentional psychologism that the objectivity of essences and the validity of any knowledge were found on an empirical genesis. This psychologism already had recourse to the a priori idea of an “object in general,” a condition of possibility for empirical genesis itself to explain the genesis of number and elementary logical concepts. The theme of transcendental genesis ought to lead back to a moment that is before any eidetics and bring close to the sphere of antepredicative existence. Thus, Husserl's philosophy implies to be overtaken in a way that will only be a prolongation or, inversely, for a radical explicitation that will be a veritable conversion.

Keywords:   a priori, genesis, Husserl, object in general, transcendental genesis, eidetics
