I find phenomenology to be intuitively appealing. I appreciate how Husserl sought to pare down the world to its essence, its core. Like so many philosophers both before and since, he attempted to tear and down and then reconstruct philosophy and knowledge on an entirely new footing. Phenomenology focuses on life as it is lived, and existence as it is experienced. The world that we encounter is nothing more than the world we intended (even if it is not the world we would prefer). But we don’t really encounter the world as if it is somehow separate or distinct from ourselves. Husserl anticipated the contemporary notion of embodiment, of grounded cognition, that has become popular in contemporary psychology and philosophy. He, along with Merleau-Ponty, thrust the lifeworld into the centerfield of philosophy, even if it was criticized from various perspectives. This is what I find intuitively “correct” in Husserlian philosophy.
