This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the phenomenological approaches to epistemology. It argues against the claim that phenomenology originated in Edmund Husserl, who forged a link to epistemology that Martin Heidegger dissolved in his turn to ontology. The chapter contends that it was Immanuel Kant who worked out a phenomenological approach to epistemology, which was merely rethought by his main phenomenological successors, and also discusses the crucial problem in a constructivist form of epistemology.

Keywords: epistemology; phenomenology; Edmund Husserl; Martin Heidegger; ontology; Immanuel Kant; constructivist epistemology
