Back to 'Things in Themselves': A Phenomenological by Josef Seifert

By Josef Seifert

In an enlightening discussion with Descartes, Kant, Husserl and Gadamer, Professor Seifert argues that the unique suggestion of phenomenology used to be not anything except the primordial perception of philosophy itself, the root of philosophia perennis. His radical rethinking of the phenomenological procedure ends up in a common, objectivist philosophy in direct continuity with Plato, Aristotle and Augustine.


In order to validate the classical declare to understand independent being, the writer defends Husserl's methodological precept "Back to objects themselves" from empiricist and idealist critics, together with the later Husserl, and replies to the arguments of Kant which try and discredit the knowability of items in themselves.


Originally released in 1982, this booklet culminates in a phenomenological and important unfolding of the Augustinian cogito, as giving entry to immutable fact approximately worthwhile essences and the genuine life of private being.
