Husserl's Logical Investigations Reconsidered
Denis Fisette Universire du Quebec a Montreal The twelve original studies collected in this volume examine different aspects of Edmund Husserl's Logical lnvestigations. They are authored by scholars and specialists intemationally recognized for their expertise in the fields of phenomenology, logic, history of philosophy and philosophy of mind. They approach Husserl's groundwork from different angles and perspectives and shed new light on a number of issues such as meaning, intentionality, ontology, logic, etc. They also explore questions such as the place of the Logical Investigations within the whole of Husserl's work, its sources in 19th century philosophy and in particular in the philosophical work of Franz Brentano and Bemard Bolzano, its reception amongst the so called members of the Munich Circle and its influence on contemporary philosophy. In short, this volume constitutes a "companion" to Husserl's Logical lnvestigations. These studies were, for the most part, originally presented as contributions to an international conference held in Montreal in May 2001: "Husserl's Logical Jnvestigations: origins and posterity of phenomenology". The conference aimed at commemorating the centenary of phenomenology's seminal work by initiating a reflection on its significance, its historical origins and its impact on post-Husserlian phenomenology.
