This chapter examines the phenomenological epistemology of Edmund Husserl. It argues against the claim that Husserl's position emerged out of his critical reception of Franz Brentano and suggests that it was out of his reaction to Immanuel Kant. The chapter considers the development of Husserl's position as a continuing effort to resolve difficulties, particularly with respect psychologism. It also analyzes the changing phenomenological position of Husserl in his works Logical Investigations, Ideas, and The Idea of Phenomenology and discusses his theory of phenomenology as transcendental idealism.
