This book unifies a large part of the vast body of Husserlian phenomenology using a relatively simple set of dynamical laws. The underlying idea of the book is that a certain core theory of "world-constitution" in Husserl can be formalized and presented in less than 100 pages, with the aid of detailed graphics and quantitative textual analysis. The book is the first to formalize so much of Husserl's work in such a short space. It is both a contribution to Husserl scholarship, and a unique and accessible introduction to Husserlian phenomenology. By making key Husserlian ideas clear and by formally expressing them, it facilitates efforts to apply Husserlian phenomenology in various domains, in particular to cognitive science. The book thus prepares the way for a detailed point-by-point set of connections between Husserl's phenomenology and contemporary cognitive science.
