  • Hopkins Publishes Book on Husserl

    January 19, 2011

    Philosophy Professor Burt Hopkins traces the development of philosophical thought of Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology, in his new book, The Philosophy of Husserl, published by Acumen Publishing. Hopkins examines the movement of Husserl’s thought from its earliest investigations of the philosophy of mathematics to those on the crisis of European sciences. Husserl's teaching and writing influenced many 20th century philosophers, including Edith Stein, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Emmanuel Levinas,  and Jacques Derrida. Pope John Paul II was also influenced by Husserl's philosophy.

    Hopkins, Chair of the Philosophy Department, received his Ph.D. from DePaul University. In1989, he joined the Seattle University faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, which offers 33 undergraduate degrees and 7 advanced degrees.
