An Introduction to Husserl’s Phenomenology

Jan Patočka
Translated by Erazim Kohák
Edited with an Introduction by James Dodd
A new paperback edition of the volume formerly available in hardback only

Despite its title, this work by the great Czech philosopher and dissident Jan Patočka is far more than simply an introduction. Patočka ranges over the whole of Husserl’s output, from The Philosophy of Arithmetic to The Crisis of the European Sciences, and traces the evolution of all the central issues of Husserlian phenomenology—intentionality, categorial intuition, temporality, the subject-body, the concrete a priori, and transcendental subjectivity—providing his own highly original contributions as he proceeds.

“Kohák’s enormously readable translation of Jan Patočka’s Introduction now opens access for English readers to the Czech thinker’s famously original alternative to Husserl’s basic thrust.”

—Lester Embree, Editor, The Encyclopedia of Phenomenology
