This chapter discusses the most central methodological and thematic results of Husserl’s Cartesian Meditations. It begins with a short account of the intellectual history of the work and its origin, and then proceeds to explicate Husserl’s understanding of phenomenology as a radically critical and self-critical science. The subsequent thematic sections clarify the constitution of selfhood, embodiment, otherness, and the world as a common constitutional achievement of transcendental selves.
