The History of Philosophy and the Transcendental Motive

(p.170) 10 The History of Philosophy and the Transcendental Motive
The Problem of Genesis in Husserl's Philosophy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter outlines the fact that for the idea to be a priori idea of philosophy and idea of history, it is necessary that it should be indefinitely synthetic and in Krisis II, Husserl tries to explain the movement and the being of history that are oriented by the “ideal of universal philosophy.” Husserl conducts his research with a transcendental motive which should have merged itself with the idea of an alteration whose necessity shows that it is, in the same moment, fulfillment, and authentic constitution of history. The transcendental genesis itself was already described, in its very passivity, in terms of universal eidetic structures. The genesis of these structures, to be accessible to a theoretic gaze, had to be shaped by a teleology. Hence, Husserl's philosophy of history remains less than the phenomenological project.
