This collection demonstrates the fruits of the groundlaying work on the philosophy/phenomenology of life presented in 30 volumes of the Analecta Husserliana, and inaugurates a radical phase in philosophy/phenomenology. As the author in her introduction puts it, the time is ripe to abandon the prejudices against empiria and set aside in a "second position" the epistemological/constitutive criterion of validity and truth - without, however, abandoning it. To the contrary: recognizing, with our present culture, the overwhelmingly superior validity of the pragmaticity test, which science indubitably applies in its "verification" of technology, philosophy/phenomenology at last reaches the full significance of reality: the fullness of the vital fact of life, which comprises not only the works and enjoyment of the mind and the spirit, but those of the bios and the cosmos too. The dialogue with the life sciences opens up; philosophy of life and the human creative condition draws together all the radiations of life into its field of inquiry. 537pp.Base of spine D/J slightly bumped.Top corners of boards bumped.
