Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology by Edmund Husserl

The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology, Husserls last great work, is important both for its content and for the influence it has had on other philosophers.

But the vitality of the latter consists in the fact that they are struggling for their true and genuine meaning and thus for the meaning of a genuine humanity.
