Edmund Husserl

Edmund Husserl (1859–1938) was a German philosopher and professor who founded the school of phenomenonology.

Husserl was born in what is now the Czech Republic. He earned a Ph.D. in mathematics before attending lectures by Franz Brentano, which lured him into philosophy.

Husserl was a teacher of Martin Heidegger, who also served as Husserl's assistant. Heidegger's main work, Being and Time was originally dedicated to Husserl, although this dedication was removed in 1941 out of fear that the Nazi party would ban it. The relationship between the two worsened after Heidegger began to support the Nazi party.

Husserl also had significant influence on the work of Jean-Paul Sartre.
