Description - Routledge Philosophy GuideBook to Husserl and the Cartesian Meditations by A. D. Smith

Husserl has enjoyed a revival of interest in recent years and the Cartesian Meditations is perhaps his most widely read text. The book is an introduction to Husserl's phenomenology and is based on Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy . Husserl attempts to show how Descartes discovered the 'transcendental' perspective which is essential to any genuine philosophy. Until now there has never been a secondary text on this important and influential work on philosophy. This book, in conjunction with the text itself, will serve as a proper introduction to Husserlian phenomenology - a philosophy that is attracting increasing interest within the analytical tradition, as well as being regarded as one of the most important developments in philosophy from within the 'continental tradition'. A.D. Smith introduces and assesses the key concepts that arise in the book in clear and engaging way. His style is highly accessible and suitable for anyone coming to the Cartesian Meditations for the first time.
