In The Crisis of the European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology , Husserl argues that the only way to respond to the scientific Krisis of which he speaks is with phenomenological reflections on the history, method, and task of philosophy. On the assumption that an accurate diagnosis of a malady is a necessary condition for an effective remedy, this paper aims to formulate a precise concept of the Krisis of the European sciences with which Husserl operates in this work. There are two different tendencies in the literature on this question. According to the traditional interpretation, the Krisis of the European sciences lies not in the inadequacy of their scientificity but in the loss of their meaningfulness for life. According to an innovative suggestion, the Krisis lies not in the loss of their meaningfulness for life but in the inadequacy of their scientificity. These readings are mutually exclusive because each claims that the other misidentifies the Krisis as something that it is not.
Edmund Husserl was the principal founder of phenomenology—and thus one of the most influential philosophers of the 20 th century.

In Part I, Husserl discusses what he considers a crisis of science , while in Part II he discusses the astronomer Galileo Galilei and introduces the concept of the lifeworld. A second printing followed in In his view, the work brought into question Husserl's attempt to found a rigorous science that would be free from all preconceptions. He noted that some philosophers, including Maurice Merleau-Ponty , considered it a significant departure from Husserl's earlier work.

The first two parts of the current text of Crisis were published in Philosophia , and the rest languished in manuscript until the publication of the complete text in German in Renewal is renewal and neither invention nor discovery because the task of universal philosophy is already given in Europe, but it is given as a task and not as an acquisition so that any comparison of Europe to another cultural—civilizational form must pass through the infinite idea of universal philosophy. It is not an assertion that Europe in its current state is superior to another cultural—civilizational form.
Any book that announces in its very title that it will concern itself with a "crisis of the European sciences" immediately invites the suspicion that its ambitions are absurdly overinflated. As philosophers living in the present-day world-situation, he tells us in the first, introductory part, we have fallen into a "painful existential contradiction" Crisis ,
