Development of Cognitive Synthesis in Immanuel Kant and Edmund Husserl
1995 0-7734-9127-9
Presents a close textual examination and critical analysis of the major works in which the concept of synthesis is presented. Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and the Inaugural Dissertation, and Husserl's Experience and Judgment, Ding und Raum and The Phenomenology of Internal Time Consciousness are examined. It demonstrates the manner in which Husserl formulated his theory of passive synthesis through his analysis of Kant's discussions of synthesis. It advances the understanding of two major philosophical figures and provides a ground for understanding the development of the theory of consciousness and cognitive theory.
