Full description for Edmund Husserl's "Origin of Geometry"
'One of Derrida's best' - "Radical Philosophy". 'Derrida's introduction is a detailed and illuminating study of Husserl and a model of excellence in the practice of phenomenology. Essential for the specialist in phenomenology and for everyone interested in science, philosophy, and their interface...Highly recommended' - "Choice". 'Derrida's 'deconstructive' critique of phenomenology relates writing to the key concept of 'consciousness of difference'. Following Husserl, he explores the philosophical and traditional roots of geometry and the sciences as a kind of history...[This book] shows original thinking, and [is] accurate but demanding' - "Library Journal". "Edmund Husserl's 'Origin of Geometry': An Introduction" (1962) is Jacques Derrida's earliest published work. In this commentary - interpretation of the famous appendix to Husserl's "The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology", Derrida relates writing to such key concepts as differing, consciousness, presence, and historicity. Starting from Husserl's method of historical investigation, Derrida gradually unravels a deconstructive critique of phenomenology itself, which forms the foundation for his later criticism of Western metaphysics as a metaphysics of presence. The complete text of "Husserl's Origin of Geometry" is included. This Bison Book edition carries an afterword by the translator, John P. Leavey Jr., who has also translated (with Richard Rand) Derrida's Glas and supplied a Glossary, books published by the University of Nebraska Press in 1986.
