Can an empirical psychology be drawn from Husserl's phenomenology?
This chapter will seek to explore some of Husserl's ideas about consciousness that are helpful to contemporary research. A descriptive phenomenological psychological research method was founded by Amedeo Giorgi (Giorgi, 1985) which is based on Husserl's philosophical method and which will serve as the framework for the discussion in this chapter. There are numerous publications already in existence that deal with many aspects involved in the method (Giorgi, 1970, 1981,1983, 1992, 1994, 2000), however, this chapter will attempt to cover the manner in which some of Husserl's concepts are implicitly involved not all of which have received sufficient articulation elsewhere.
