Philosophy as a Rigorous Sience: Towards the Establishment of a Realistic Phenomenological Method - In Critical Dialogue with Edmund Husserl's Ideas Concerning Philosophy as a Rigorous Science

Ten years after writing Logical Investigations, Edmund Husserl, in his famous and sole Logos essay, defended the thesis that philosophy ought to be a 'rigorous science' and described this goal of philosophy as an "ideal" that 'has never been completely abandoned, but also as an ideal that has never been even roughly or partially realized. Husserl considers it as evidently tragic that up until now philosophy has never lived up to this claim. In this regard, Husserl asserts it is not only philosophy, which is not, yet a perfect or complete science.
