This paperback abridged edition of J.N. Findlay's translation makes the key sections of this classic work available in one volume for the first time. It has been specially edited and includes a new introduction by Dermot Moran and a new preface by Sir Michael Dummett. It places the "Logical Investigations" in historical context and brings out its importance for contemporary philosophy.

Industry Reviews

"For years students and teachers of Husserl's 'breakthrough' work, as he calls it, have had to contend with the original hardcover edition that was almost as inaccessible as it was expensive. Not only can members of the graduate seminars now avail themselves of a reasonable priced, complete edition, but teachers of undergraduate students can introduce them to this rich work in abridged form at a relatively inexpensive price." -Daniel Dalhstrom, "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, April 11, 2002
