(p.9) 1 Meeting the Problem
The Problem of Genesis in Husserl's Philosophy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses a question related to the problem of genesis that is motivated by the unquestionable progress of the natural and human sciences and, especially, by the advent of scientific psychology. The objectivity of knowledge is allowed to depend on the formal conditions of possibility that escape the living in time and every genesis and hence, the problem is then to base the incarnation and the application of formal a priori laws in the effective time of psychological subjectivity without having recourse to an ideality of time which would only push the problem one stage back. Husserl is closer to the logician-psychologists, like Sigwart than to such neo-Kantians or Platonists as Natorp. Husserl's mission will be to make progressively explicit the theme of intentionality and to define a new set of problems.

Keywords:   problem of genesis, scientific psychology, knowledge, genesis, psychological subjectivity, Husserl
