Transcendental phenomenology is not simply a theory about the structure of (inter)subjectivity, nor is it merely a discourse about how we understand and perceive the natural world and our sense-constitutive activities and passivities. It is not even a theory about how the world appears to us, if such a theory is supposed to be complemented by a further investigation (left to metaphysics) of what the world itself is like. Transcendental phenomenology aims  to  answer  the  following  question:  “in  what  way  is  the  being  of  the world,  the  world,  which  is  for  me  and  could  be  for  me,  grounded  in  my intending, in my streaming experiencing and otherwise conscious life, and in my enduring features”? (Edmund  Husserl, Husserliana XXXIV: 244)

Despite of a long tradition  of  invocation and discussion of Husserl’s transcendental thinking, the deep meaning of the idea of a transcendental constitution of consciousness  remains even  today  troublingly  obscure. We would like to take Husserl’s references seriously and reflect on the following topics:

·       The Kantian and the Husserlian notion of the transcendental ego

·       The distinction between the transcendental and the natural, the transcendental and the psychological, the transcendental and the anthropological

·       Husserl’s notion of a world-annihilation

·       Husserl’s mature transcendental phenomenology

·       The idea of transcendental logic

·       The transcendental foundation of the natural sciences

·       The relation of transcendental phenomenology to post-Kantian philosophies

·       Eugen Fink and the critique of transcendental reason
