By Charles Parsons

In From Kant to Husserl, Charles Parsons examines quite a lot of ancient opinion on philosophical questions, from arithmetic to phenomenology. Amplifying his early rules on Kant’s philosophy of mathematics, Parsons makes use of Kant’s lectures on metaphysics to discover how his arithmetical techniques relate to the kinds. He then turns to early reactions through instant successors of Kant, Johann Schultz and Bernard Bolzano, to make clear disputed questions concerning interpretation of Kant’s philosophy of arithmetic. , in addition, in what Kant intended by way of “pure common science,” Parsons considers the connection among the 1st Critique and the Metaphysical Foundations of ordinary Science. His remark on Kant’s Transcendental Aesthetic departs from arithmetic to have interaction the vexed query of what it tells concerning the which means of Kant’s transcendental idealism.

Proceeding directly to phenomenology, Parsons examines Frege’s evolving proposal of extensions, his angle towards set idea, and his correspondence, quite exchanges with Russell and Husserl. An essay on Brentano brings out, in relation to judgment, a substitute for the now ordinary Fregean view of negation, and, on fact, choices to the conventional correspondence view which are nonetheless mentioned at the present time. finishing with the query of why Husserl didn't take the “linguistic turn,” a last essay incorporated right here marks the single article-length dialogue of Husserl Parsons has ever written, regardless of a long-standing engagement with this philosopher.

See for instance the passage from the overview, AR, pp. 11–12, mentioned via J. N. Mohanty in his dialogue of this factor in “Husserl and Frege: a brand new examine Their Relationship,” p. fifty three. That Frege isn't the resource for Husserl’s making this contrast was once remarked on through Dagfinn Føllesdal, “An advent to Phenomenology for Analytic Philosophers,” p. 421. Professor Føllesdal informs me that a similar comment happened in an previous model of the paper released in Norwegian in 1962. 23 brought up on p. ninety two. For the complete textual content of the letter, see Veraart, op. cit. , p. 104. 24 besides the fact that, in 1935 Andrew Osborn requested Husserl approximately Frege’s impact at the abandonment of psychologism; Husserl is pronounced to have “concurred” but in addition to have pointed out Bolzano. See Schuhmann, Husserl-Chronik, p. 463. I owe this connection with Føllesdal. i don't understand no matter if the query of the opposite impression has been mentioned. you can now not anticipate a lot, in view of the adulthood of Frege’s perspectives whilst Husserl started to submit major paintings. Husserl’s sending Frege his assessment of Schröder turns out to have motivated the latter to hold via his personal plan to write down a critique of Schröder (see p. ninety four and Frege, “Kritische Beleuchtung einiger Punkte in E. Schröders Vorlesungen über die Algebra der Logik,” in KS). in all likelihood Husserl influenced Frege to explain his place at the factor of the time among Inhaltslogik and Umfangslogik (roughly, the intensional and extensional element of view); see “Ausführungen,” NS, pp. 128–136, trans. pp. 118–125. Husserl used to be essentially intensionalist (see “Der Folgerungskalkül und die Inhaltslogik”); Frege gave issues to either side yet is naturally at backside extensionalist. (On this point of Husserl, i'm indebted to my scholar Nathaniel S. Heiner. ) A extra speculative query is whether or not Frege learn the Logische Untersuchungen and no matter if it might have stimulated his past due writings. as far as i do know, there's no direct proof that he knew the e-book. The identify and a bit of the content material of his a hundred forty five FREGE AND PHENOMENOLOGY except the query of effect, there are absolutely vital convergences among Frege and Husserl. yet one may still take note of their boundaries. within the 1891 letter, Husserl expresses remorse that he has now not had time “to shape a transparent photo of the character and volume of your unique Begriffschrift” (p. ninety nine, trans. p. 64). in my view, Husserl by no means indicates a take hold of of quantificational good judgment and its importance, even supposing his application of a “pure thought of manifolds” may be learn as prophetic of version conception. 25 Russell’s “On denoting” of 1905 is during this appreciate just before every thing Husserl wrote at the philosophy of common sense. extra essentially, even with his reliable opinion of Funktion und Begriff, Husserl may have benefited from larger appreciation of the therapy of predication that is going with Frege’s concept of features and gadgets. 26 final sequence of released essays are suggestive. “The idea” is going extra deeply than Frege’s previous writings into the relation of options to rules and the brain more often than not; extra particularly, it takes account of indexical expressions, which Frege had now not performed within the past writings, yet which Husserl discusses within the Logische Untersuchungen (1st research, §26; hereafter stated as LU).
