The genesis of the crisis

Philip Buckley

pp. 37-54

The aim of this second chapter is to outline Husserl' s reflections on the genesis of the crisis of the sciences. This task demands comprehension of Husserl's view of history, history of philosophy, and perhaps most importantly, philosophy of history. It is Husserl's position that only by a philosophical comprehension of the movement of history that the true dimensions of the present-day crisis can be grasped. In a first section, Husserl's understanding of history and its shape is analyzed, followed in a second section by an investigation of Husserl's view of the pivotal figure in the history of science - Galileo.
