The second part of my research project consists in an in-depth investigation of the historical background of Husserl’s phenomenology that focuses on the relationship between German and Austrian philosophies at the turn of the 20th century. I have written a few articles on the importance of Franz Brentano’s school, as well as on the influence of early Gestalt psychology on Husserl’s phenomenology (see below), and I am currently preparing a manuscript for a book on Husserl, Lask and Heidegger that analyzes the relations between phenomenology, neo-Kantianism and hermeneutics (The logic of being).
