Otherwise only minor wear to extremities. Inner hinges strenghthened. Light pencil underlinings, especially in volume II. The "Logical Investigations" fundamentally changed philosophy and invoked the new philosophical era of the 20th century, -with this work Husserl founds phenomenology.
Ernst Bloch , "the greatest of modern utopian thinkers" Kovel , was born as the son of Jewish parents in Ludwigshafen. His two main works, "Geist der Utopie" and "Das Prinzip Hoffnung" were both written during times of exile, the first while in exile in Switzerland during the First World War, the second while in exile in America during the Second World War. Bloch became hugely influential thorughout the 20th century, providing the post-war world with hope, belief in the good of mankind, and our ability to re-establish our belief in the world and our ability to do good.
The influence of his philosophy is very widespread, and his theories are used frequently within both politics and economics as well. For instance, much climate debate refers to his thought. Bloch was clearly influenced by Marx and Hegel as well as other thinkers of that period. It is certain that he was also influenced by thinkers of his own time, but to which extent reamains more or less unknown. Not much research has yet been done on this and the answer remains to be found.
It is more difficult to determine the influence of more recent writers. Bloch himself acknowledged the influence of the "Transcendental Realist" von Hertmann, and in an interview he linked together "Schelling; hegel, Leibniz and Eduard von Hartmann"; while Wayne Hudson surprised Bloch in a late interview when he suggested the influence of the process philosophy of Jacob Froschammer.
Hudson, in fact, has unearthed a considerable range of likely contemporary philosophical influences on the young Bloch, from the theorist of "intentionality", Brentano and his disciple Meinong, through the neo-Kantains, Rickert, Cohen and Simmel, to the phenomenologists Husserl and Scheler. Bloch was thoroughly immersed in the German philosophical literature of his day.
Husserl opens the work by attacking psychologism, and he then introduces his brand new philosophical method, which he had still by then not fully developed, but which came to influence all philosophy ever since -Phenomenology! Husserl himself calls this a "Work of Breakthrough" see his preface to the second edition. In short, psychologism taught that logic itself was not an independent discipline, but a part of psychology, and it is this notion that Husserl gives its final blow in his logical investigations, -far more definitely than Frege had tried to some years earlier.
Husserl now establishes a philosophy that asks the question of the essence of the matter of perception as opposed to the form of perception, as well as the meaning of the difference between formal or pure and material laws, truths and determinations, -all based on his strong interest in the relationship between the formalities of arithmetic and of logic.
The work is the starting point for mereology, the formal first order theory of wholes and their parts. Mereology is both an application of predicate logic and a branch of formal ontology. Husserl is now famous as the father of phenomenology, and he decisively influenced the likes of Heidegger, Sartre, Carnap, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Ricoeur, Derrida etc.
Among this list of eminent people, we can most likely count Bloch as well.
Life[ edit ] Bloch was born in Ludwigshafen , the son of a Jewish railway-employee. After studying philosophy, he married Else von Stritzky, daughter of a Baltic brewer in , who died in His second marriage with Linda Oppenheimer lasted only a few years. His third wife was Karola Piotrowska , a Polish architect , whom he married in in Vienna.
