Original offprint of Husserl's last great work, inscribed by him to"Herrn Professor John Wild ergebenst überreicht vom Verfasser" (Professor John Wild, humbly donated by the author). The American philosopher John Wild, a firm supporter of phenomenology, was a contributor to the Journal of Philosophy and Phenomenological Research.
"Edmund Husserl is undoubtedly one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. This is true not only because of the profundity, breadth, and rigor of his own philosophical thinking, but also because of the influence he has exerted on a great number of other leading thinkers of the 20th century...
To be human at all is essentially to be a genuine human being in a social world whose life is guided by reason. For man is a rational being only to the degree that his whole world is a rational world and his entire civilization a rational civilization, oriented towards this goal. Although these ideas were for the first time formulated only n Part One of The Crisis of European Sciences (1936), they nonetheless give guidance to Husserl's concern throughout his entire career as a philosopher" (J. K. Kockelmans in Thinkers of the Twentieth Century).
