Abstract

Lionel Lewkow’s book is a meticulous analysis of the links between Luhmann’s theory and Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology. His study explores this relationship, commonly indicated by exegetes but rarely examined in detail and rigorously. Specifically, the author aims to discuss how Luhmann ‘observed’ Husserl as well as the scope and limits of the recovery that he carried out of the Moravian philosopher’s work. Thus, throughout the text the author points out the partiality of common interpretations about the Luhmann-Husserl duo, generally revolving around the issue of meaning. On the contrary, the scrupulous examination offered by Lewkow expands the understanding of the complex and fruitful link between both authors. This is possible because his reasoning brings to light a diverse and particularly suggestive range of theoretical issues derived from the reception of Husserl in Luhmann’s work.
