In Husserl on Ethics and Intersubjectivity, Janet Donohoe offers a compelling look into Husserl's shift from a "static" to a "genetic" approach in his analysis of consciousness. Rather than view consciousness as an abstract unity, Husserl began investigating consciousness by taking into account the individual's lived experiences.
Engaging critics from contemporary analytic schools to third-generation phenomenologists, Donohoe shows that they often do not do justice to the breadth of Husserl's thoughts. In separate chapters Donohoe elucidates the relevance of Husserl's later genetic phenomenology to his work on time consciousness, intersubjectivity, and ethical issues. This much-needed synthesis of Husserl's methodologies will be of interest to Husserl scholars, phenomenologists, and philosophers from both Continental and analytic schools.
