The Philosophical Significance of the Transcendental-Phenomenological Reduction

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


After having now carried out the new method of the transcendental reduction in its entirety and after having constructed it itself in a methodological ascent from its lower stratum of a merely phenomenological-psychological reduction, we may well say that it has enriched us enormously in this methodological grounding. Not only [is it the case] that the Cartesian reduction, based on the proof of the possible non-existence of the experienced world, had a direct but only limited result. Through the starting point of the non-existence of the experienced world it led our considerations to subjectivity, but only as experiencing and thereby as unaffected by this non-existence.
