Editorial Reviews

<p>Fink's study of Descartes's sixth Meditation is an invaluable addition to the corpus of Husserl scholarship. More than simply a scholarly treatise, however, it is the result of Fink's collaboration with Husserl during the last ten years of Husserl's life. The textual notations and appendixes by Husserl, which are included in this book, demonstrate the close work between the two thinkers, and indeed they also show Husserl's endorsement of Fink's project. Bruzina, whose lengthy introduction sets forth the historical circumstances and context from which this work emerged, does a fine job illustrating the rightful importance of this work. This truly essential work in phenomenology should find a prominent place alongside Husserl's own works. For readers interested in phenomenology--and in Husserl in particular--it cannot be recommended highly enough.J. A./P>--J. A. Bell, Southeastern Louisiana University"Choice" (01/01/1995)
