Edmund Husserl and Eugen Fink

This chapter describes how Eugen Fink learned from Husserl himself. Unlike those of us today who wish to study the philosophy of Edmund Husserl, Fink did not gain his understanding of phenomenology primarily from texts. Whereas we are faced with the massive collection of manuscripts in the Husserl Archives at Louvain and the continuing publication of selections from them in the Husserliana series, Fink listened to Husserl himself, spoke with him, thought with him. It was not the written line of what Plato called “dead discourse” but “the living speech” of Husserl's own teaching that he followed. Even Husserl's offerings were never analyses of writings; his thought was always focused on issues and problems in the matters at hand, not on the wording of texts.

Keywords:   manuscripts, Husserl Archives, Louvain, Husserliana series, dead discourse, speech
