The Crisis of Meaning and the Life-World
Husserl, Heidegger, Arendt, Patočka
By Ľubica Učník

Učník examines the existential conflict that formed the focus of Edmund Husserl’s final work: how to reconcile scientific rationality with the meaning of human existence. To investigate this conundrum, she places Husserl in dialogue with three of his most important successors: Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, and Jan Patočka.
