This direction on common sense and thought of information fell precisely halfway among the e-book of the Logical Investigations in 1900-01 and concepts I in 1913. It constitutes a summation and consolidation of Husserl’s logico-scientific, epistemological, and epistemo-phenomenological investigations of the previous years and a huge step within the trip from the descriptivo-psychological elucidation of natural good judgment within the Logical Investigations to the transcendental phenomenology of absolutely the cognizance of the target correlates constituting themselves in its acts in rules I.
What follows makes an attempt to synthesize Husserl's social ethics and to combine the subjects of this subject into his higher philosophical matters. bankruptcy I proceeds with the speculation that Husser! believed that every one of lifestyles should be tested and lived by means of the transcendental phenomenologist, and for this reason motion was once no longer anything which one did remoted from one's dedication to being philosophical in the noetic-noematic box.

Revolution tears itself apart; the future which was going to guide it withholds itself in consciences, becomes opinion and point of view-a point of view one tries to impose. Politics, whether of understanding or of reason, oscillates between the world of reality and that of values, between individual judgment and common action, between the present and the future. Even if one thinks, as Marx did, that these poles are united in a historical factor-the proletariat-which is at one and the same time power and value, yet, as there may well be disagreement on the manner of making the proletariat enter history and take possession of it, Marxist politics is, just like all the others, undemonstrable.
To go beyond this, we must interpret freely. Let us do this without imputing to Weber more than he would have wished to say. THESE INTELLIGIBLE NUCLEI of history are typical ways of treating natural being, of responding to others and to death. They appear at the point where man and the givens of nature or of the past meet, arising as symbolic matrices which have nQ pre2. , II (1904), 17-18; ET, pp. 54-55· The Crisis of Understanding / 17 existence and which can, for a longer or a shorter time, influence history itself and then disappear, not by external forces but through an internal disintegration or because one of their secondary elements becomes predominant and changes their nature.
Historical epochs become ordered around a questioning of human possibility, of which each has its formula, rather than around an immanent solution, of which history would be the manifestation. BECAUSE ITS AIM is to recover the fundamental choices of the past, Weber's science is a methodical extension of his experience of the present.
