Phenomenology and the Exact Sciences

My plan is to prepare a book that explicates and analyzes the implications of phenomenology for the exact sciences. The first part of the book presents the work of the founder of phenomenology, Edmund Husserl, on logic, mathematics, and the natural sciences. This part has been completed. Two additional parts of the book, sections of which have been completed, will focus on the work of thinkers in the twentieth century who were influenced by Husserl’s ideas on the exact sciences. The central figures to be covered are Hermann Weyl, Oskar Becker, Arend Heyting, Felix Kaufmann, Dietrich Mahnke, and Kurt Gödel.
