The circularity of employing the self-same terms in an analytical description of that phenomena to which those terms refer. But they also point to express limitations of phenomenological intuition. As every phenomenological sentence is meaningful only insofar as it is repeated originarily by the engaged phenomenologist herself, phenomenological sentences will not be genuinely understood prior to the activity of phenomenological investigation. It is important to point out, furthermore, that the intuitions arising out of this phenomenologizing activity, to which Fink refers above, are not momentary, self-enclosed cognitional atoms.
By the end of 1935, Husserl, the most famous and in many respects still the most influential German philosopher in Europe, was stripped entirely of his academic affiliations. Only his assistant, Eugen Fink, and his most dedicated friends and colleagues stood with him in these dire times. Nevertheless, Husserl stuck to his habit of writing. The manuscripts that make up the “Crisis” writings,64 his last and perhaps most famous publishing effort, stem from this period, for instance. Through this sustained creative activity, not just during his retirement but throughout his entire career, Husserl generated a substantial literary corpus—the vast bulk of which went unpublished during his lifetime.
For although there are materials in the Husserl Archive in which he proposed and to some degree worked out the idea of such a system, these are, at best, sketches and incomplete drafts.
