This introduction discusses the theme of this book, which is the role of Immanuel Kant's ideas in phenomenological approaches to epistemology. The book highlights the importance of Kant's critical philosophy in understanding the epistemological thrust of phenomenology and argues that all later phenomenologists stand in Kant's debt. It analyzes the works of the most post-Kantian phenomenologists—including Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty—and describes how they reacted to the works of Kant in developing a distinctive phenomenological theory centered on the problem of knowledge.
