Fundierung as a Logical Concept

  • Gian-Carlo Rota
Part of the Modern Birkhäuser Classics book series (MBC)


Husserl’s Third Logical Investigation,1 ostensibly dealing with the phenomenology of whole and parts, is meant to introduce the notion of Fundierung. Fundierung is frequently used in phenomenological literature, although little has been written about it since Husserl introduced it. Husserl himself, while using Fundierung extensively, never felt the need to reopen the discussion.
