Husserl & Kant

Spring 2022

Taught By: James Dodd

Section: A

CRN: 10692

Credits: 3

The importance of a reading of Kant for Husserlian phenomenology cannot be overestimated. Husserl's interpretation of Kant, as well as his struggle against rival interpretations (e.g., by neo-Kantians), is a key element of his philosophical development. Moreover, it is clear that any assessment of Husserl's transcendental idealism requires an engagement with Kant's legacy. In this seminar we will develop a comparative reading of Husserl and Kant that will take both of these ways of posing the question of their relation into account. Our focus will be on phenomenological interpretations of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and The Critique of Practical Reason, taking as our interpretative point of departure Husserl's Ideas I and his Formal and Transcendental Logic, as well as a number of lectures and shorter essays. We will also consider the question of possible phenomenological approaches to Kant's Critique of Judgment from a Husserlian perspective.
