Husserl’s and Heidegger’s Transcendental Projects

From the Natural Attitude to Functioning Intentionality
WithDermot Moran

Moran conducts a reading of Husserl and Heidegger’s transcendental projects through the lens of Merleau-Ponty’s The Philosopher and His Shadow, with the aim of clarifying the relationship between the “natural attitude” and the transcendental standpoint made possible in the reduction. He shows how Husserl’s position evolved from early rigid demarcation to a more nuanced problematic that admits “nature” as something like an essential correlate to the transcendental standpoint.
