Appeared in Choice on 2008-07-01:
Clear and scrupulously informative, this volume is devoted to the thought and influence of one of the 20th-century's most influential philosophers, Edmund Husserl, the generally recognized founder of phenomenology. Drummond (Fordham Univ.) strikes an impressive balance between rigor of content and accessibility that should serve the needs of readers of widely varying backgrounds. Two separate chronologies ("Life" and "Courses") are followed by a lucid introduction that features an overview of Husserl's career and synopsis of his influence on central issues in Continental philosophy. The abundantly cross-referenced and alphabetically organized entries encompass concepts, works, and persons related to and influenced by the phenomenological tradition, making this a useful resource even for those whose research needs might be only tangentially related to either Husserl or phenomenology. This work should enjoy a place in any academic library serving curricula with an emphasis on Continental philosophy. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty/researchers. R. A. Sica Jr. Eastern Kentucky University

Title Summary
"Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) is widely regarded as the founding figure of the philosophical movement of "phenomenology." Husserl's philosophical program was both embraced and rejected by many, but in either case his ideas set the stage for and exercised an enormous influence on the development of much of the philosophy that followed. In particular, his thought provides the backdrop and impetus for movements such as existentialism, hermeneutics, and deconstruction. Also, because of his career-long concerns with logic and mathematics, there are many points of contact between Husserl's phenomenology and the so-called analytical philosophy, further cementing study of Husserl's thought across the philosophical spectrum." "Historical Dictionary of Husserl's Philosophy provides the means to approach the texts of Husserl and his major commentators. This is done through a chronology, introductory essay; extensive bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on key terms and neologisms, as well as brief discussions of Husserl's major works and those of his most important predecessors, contemporaries, and successors."--BOOK JACKET.
Long Description
Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) is widely regarded as the founding figure of the philosophical movement of "phenomenology." Husserl's philosophical program was both embraced and rejected by many, but in either case, his ideas set the stage for and exercised an enormous influence on the development of much of the philosophy that followed. In particular, his thought provides the backdrop and impetus for movements such as existentialism, hermeneutics, and deconstruction. Also, because of his career-long concerns with logic and mathematics, there are many points of contact between Husserl's phenomenology and so-called "analytical philosophy," further cementing study of Husserl's thought across the philosophical spectrum. The Historical Dictionary of Husserl's Philosophy provides the means to approach the texts of Husserl, as well as those of his major commentators. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on key terms and neologisms, as well as brief discussions of Husserl's major works and of some of his most important predecessors, contemporaries, and successors.
