The Triumph of Subjectivity
An Introduction to Transcendental PhenomenologyJ. Quentin Lauer, S.J.FORDHAM UNIVERSITY PRESS • NEW YORK 
 The Nihil obstat and Imprimatur are official declarations that a book or pamphlet is free of doctrinal or moral error. No implication is contained therein that those who have granted the Nihil obstatand Imprimatur agree with the contents, opinions or statements expressed.© FORDHAM UNIVERSITY PRESS • NEW YORK, NEW YORK • 1958Manufactured in the United States of AmericaLIBRARY OF CONGRESS CATALOG CARD NUMBER: 58-12363ISBN 0-8232-0337-90-8232-0336-0 PrefaceTo an observer of the contemporary intellectual scene, it may appear that the years following theend of the war have witnessed a triumph of phenomenology on an international scale. Certainly, thisimpression is correct to some extent. Much, however, of what passes for "phenomenology" can thus betaken only in a very broad, not to say extremely loose sense. Some of the writings about Husserl'sphenomenology are too much colored and determined by views current in contemporary philosophicaltrends which, though they have undoubtedly developed in the wake of Husserl's phenomenology, can notyet be considered as its continuations; that is, as continuations of Husserl's work along the lines of hisgeneral orientation. Needless to say, to thus continue Husserl's work is not only compatible with, butmight even sometimes demand modifications of, particular theories.As far as the situation in the United States is concerned, the unfortunate fact of the matter is thatHusserl's writings are hardly studied at all, and his theories and ideas remain largely unknown. So by-passed, phenomenology is not permitted to exert the invigorating influence it might have uponcontemporary American philosophy which thus deprives itself of the vitalization it might derive from thephilosophical substance and radicalism of Husserl's work. No less deplorable are the misconceptionscurrent in what may be called philosophical public opinion: the misunderstanding of Husserl's notion of "intuition" for a kind of mystical insight or illumination; the misinterpretation of his descriptive analyses
