The Problem of Rigorous Science in Edmund Husserls Phenomenology
Abstract: In this paper, I intend to grapple with the idea of philosophy as rigorous science from the point of view of Husserls phenomenology, in order to show that there is a natural conjunction between Science and Metaphysics in Husserlian thought, provided that these two concepts are considered in their fundamental or transcendental sense (Kant). Science is synonymous with metaphysics when it becomes a condition of possibilities of itself. Under the banner of phenomenology, Husserl intends to base the first philosophy as a rigorous science, in an apodictic sense, in two essential moments. The first moment is that of logic, and the second moment corresponds to the setting up of the vocabulary of transcendental phenomenology as the first science.
Keywords: rigorous science, logic, phenomenology, epistemology of science, metaphysics, theory of knowledge, human sciences
