The Grounding of Logic and the Limits of Formal-Apophantic Analytics

  • Edmund Husserl
Part of the Husserliana: Edmund Husserl – Collected Works book series (HUCO, volume 14)


In the last lecture we became acquainted with the Platonic idea of philosophy. What interests us now is above all the development of European science: how and to what extent Platonic impulses come to life in it.The new philosophy originating from Plato’s dialectic—logic, general metaphysics (Aristotle’s First Philosophy), mathematics, the sciences of nature and spirit in their various disciplines (such as physics, biology, ethics, and politics)—all of these disciplines were only incomplete realizations of the Platonic idea of philosophy philosophy as absolutely justifying science.
