    This course is an introduction to Edmund Husserl’s  phenomenology, or a peculiar kind of study of consciousness and its objects. We cover the main topics with which Edmund Husserl concerned himself during his long philosophical career, which spanned from the last decade of the 1890s till into the 1930s, such as intentionality, the Body, intersubjectivity, and the Lifeworld. We also consider Husserl’s methodology, which involved aspects such as the eidetic and phenomenological reduction and the epoche, and the main stages in the development of Husserl’s thought. Since Husserl is one of the most important and influential philosophers of the 20th century, knowledge of his ideas will be valuable for students of any area of philosophy, and indispensable for the students who wish to develop a focus on 20th century Continental philosophy.
