CHAPTER I
Historical Considerations

Edmund Husserl's first work, Philosophie der Arithmetik, 1 was published in 1891. Gottlob Frege wrote a highly critical, often sarcastic, review of this book in 1894. 2 Husserl's Prolegomena to a Pure Logic, the first volume of the Logical Investigations, appeared in 1900. 3 In the Prolegomena, Husserl tried systematically to refute psychologism as a theory of logic and formulated a concept of pure logic, that contrasts sharply with the psychologism Frege had found him guilty of in the Philosophie der Arithmetik. In the Foreword to the second edition of the Prolegomena, Husserl writes that the work is essentially a reworking of lectures he gave at Halle during the year 1896. 4 In his careful and pioneering study of the relation between Frege and Husserl during these years, Dagfin Føllesdal asks the question, at what point of time between 1891 (the year of publication of Philosophie der Arithmetik) and 1896 (the year of Halle lectures) did this change in Husserl's mode of thinking take place? 5 The papers published during 1891-93 do not, according to Føllesdal, bear testimony to any such change. In the paper " Psychologische Studien zur Elementaren Logik" of 1894, Husserl is still found to believe that the foundations of logic can be clarified with the help of psychology. Accordingly, the change must have occurred between the years 1894 and 1896. Frege's famed review of the Philosophie der Arithmetik appeared in 1894. Føllesdal therefore conjectures that it is Frege's review which must have led Husserl to a complete revision of his prior mode of thinking. 6 This view about the Frege-Husserl relationship is shared by
