Edmund Husserl: Natur und Geist: Vorlesungen Sommersemester 1919, Husserliana Materialien Band IV, ed. Michael Weiler

This volume documents Husserl’s thinking as presented in a lecture course (held first in the summer semester of 1919 and then again in the winter semester of 1921/1922) on the realms of nature and spirit and on the proper phenomenological approach to them at a pivotal time in the development of his mature thought. Nonetheless, several years after its appearance, this book has yet to attract widespread attention. There are at least two external reasons for this neglect, namely that it appeared as part of the Materialien instead of as a numbered volume in the main part of the series, and also because it appeared in the same year as Husserliana XXXIV, on the transcendental reduction, and Husserliana XXXV (Einleitung in die Philosophie), as well as several others volumes in the years immediately before and after that. This may well have overwhelmed the ability of readers (and perhaps libraries) to absorb all of these new publications, both in terms of cost and in terms of the time...
