Edmund Husserl and Eugen Fink

This chapter discusses the differences between Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger, and how Eugen Fink was caught in the middle of the maelstrom. Husserl was shocked into recognition that Heidegger, his chosen successor, was a man other than he had thought him to be and a figure whose philosophical development was a profound challenge to all that Husserl had thought was the secure foundation of his life's work. All the while, Fink stood in the middle, fresh with his doctorate gained while listening to both men, forced to do his thinking amidst the differences of his mentors. Fink attempted to find a way in which the basic difference dividing Husserl and Heidegger in their own eyes could be linked in one dramatically convergent way.
