The Problem of Genesis in Husserl's Philosophy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter states that all the efforts of Husserl have been directed to define the sphere of originary and concrete transcendental constitution from 1905, the date of The Phenomenology of Internal Time Consciousness. The whole history of the theme of reduction shows that the more Husserl approaches a radicalism of reduction and gives it control over wide and diverse domains, the more he distinguishes it from an abstraction, from a “subtraction” that would purely and simply cross out its object so as to leave only an individual and formal residue. Husserlian idealism thus restores all its noetic power to intentionality, but such a coherence is disquieting. At the end of “General Introduction to Pure Phenomenology,” a reversal is seen, that is, the whole initial intention of phenomenology seemed to motivate a refusal or a taking “off-line” of genesis.

Keywords:   Husserl, theme or reduction, radicalism of reduction, subtraction, General Introduction to Pure Phenomenology, off-line
