Example text

Faithfulness is the sole guarantee of value, come what may. All this Husserl says before penetrating to the heart of his analyses in the first book of Ideas Pertaining to a Pure Phenomenology and to a Phenomenological Philosophy (1913). 123 With this ground comes the right path, which accords with the things: “The fact that, in progressing, these reflections [on what is required to institute “the One Philosophy”124] become ever more complex and ultimately lead to a whole science, to a science of the beginning, to a ‘first’ philosophy, the fact that all philosophical disciplines, indeed the foundations of any science whatsoever, spring from its root-ground [Wurzelboden]—all this had to remain hidden because the radicalism was lacking without which philosophy cannot at all be, cannot even begin” (Afterword, 569).

Therefore the first book already entails everything needed, for it sets phenomenology on its way to the whole, it begins. Insofar as it is a reflection of the whole in nuce, when taken on its own it becomes clear that Ideas I is not a fragment—but a whole. On the other hand, given the infinite scope of Husserlian phenomenology, every one of his works was destined to be a fragment from the start—that is, in view of the projected whole in the idea of phe- The Task of Thinking 29 nomenology. Such is the nature of phenomenological inquiry: to remain ever partial, and never achieve completion or perfection.

For this reason, once one has gained “the will to rigorous science,” one must make a total break with all other disciplines, as well as with every philosophy. There can be “no attempt at mediation” between phenomenology and another position, there can be “no compromises” whatsoever (337). ”85 If one abides by this demand, then Husserl’s question about the proper path to be taken turns out to be only rhetorical. 87 On the other hand, to fail to bring others to the insight into the proper road would be to fail to do one’s duty to humanity, which he considers no less sinful.
