Review quote

'An excellent introduction to Husserl's difficult introduction to phenomenology, providing a comprehensive background to the work and detailed explanations of Husserl's idiosyncratic terminology while relating the work to issues in contemporary Anglophone philosophy.' - Jonathan Webber, University of Sheffield; 'David Smith's Husserl is a timely book which provides an excellent introduction to the Cartesian Meditations and thus to phenomenology as such. Smith displays a gift in making accessible a text that is mostly regarded as highly complex and ridden with philosophical jargon... [it] will most likely become an essential introductory book to any student wishing to become acquainted with Husserl's work.' - Lilian Alweiss, Trinity College Dublin
