Husserl's world is a beautiful world where math, philosophy, and the foundations of both critical theory and analytics begin, but if you are struggling with Husserl, like I was, Routledge--the biggest name in theory wanking--has put out this book. Smith does an amazing job tackling some of Husserl's densest theories. There's more, though.

This is also an biography. In fact, he covers Husserl's material in time sequence, so that the reader can get a proper picture of what exactly was going on in Husserl's life when he was developing his theories.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415289750, Paperback)

In this stimulating introduction, David Woodruff Smith introduces the whole of Husserl’s thought, demonstrating his influence on philosophy of mind and language, on ontology and epistemology, and on philosophy of logic, mathematics and science.

Starting with an overview of his life and works, and his place in twentieth-century philosophy, and in western philosophy as a whole, David Woodruff Smith introduces Husserl’s concept of phenomenology, explaining his influential theories of intentionality, objectivity and subjectivity. In subsequent chapters he covers Husserl’s logic, metaphysics, realism and transcendental idealism, and epistemology. Finally, he assesses the significance and implications of Husserl’s work for contemporary philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

Including a timeline, glossary and extensive suggestions for further reading, Husserl is essential reading for anyone interested in this eminent philosopher, phenomenology or twentieth-century philosophy.
