Husserl and Carnap on regions and formal categories

Ansten Klev

pp. 409-429

Husserl, in his doctrine of categories, distinguishes what he calls regions from what he calls formal categories. The former are most general domains, while the latter are topic-neutral concepts that apply across all domains. Husserl's understanding of these notions of category is here discussed in detail. It is, moreover, argued that similar notions of category may be recognized in Carnap's Der logische Aufbau der Welt.
