By Tanja Staehler

GWF Hegel famously defined philosophy as 'its personal time apprehended in thoughts', reflecting a wish that we more and more event, particularly, the will to appreciate our advanced and fast-changing international. yet how will we philosophically describe the area we are living in? whilst Hegel tried his systematic account of the historic global, he had to conceive of background as rational growth to permit for such description. After the occasions of the 20 th century, we're rightfully uncertain approximately such progress.

However, within the 20th century, one other German thinker, Edmund Husserl, tried an identical venture while he realised philosophical account of our human adventure calls for getting to the ancient global we are living in. in line with Husserl, the Western international is a global in quandary. during this booklet, Tanja Staehler explores how Husserl hence radicalises Hegel’s philosophy via supplying an account of historic flow as open. Husserl’s phenomenology permits taking into account old worlds within the plural, with no hierarchy, made up our minds by way of ethics and aesthetics. Staehler argues that, via his radicalization of Hegel’s philosophy, Husserl presents us with a ancient phenomenology and a coherent inspiration of a tradition that issues to the longer term for phenomenology as a philosophy that gives the methodological grounding for various qualitative techniques within the humanities and social sciences.

Once in his life every philosopher must proceed in this way. … Edmund Husserl, The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology This is the first of three chapters concerned with methodology, and it presents an approach that emerges in retrospect from the Husserlian perspective as ‘static’ because it neither considers time (or temporality) nor history (or historicity).
