Husserl's last work' is the only one he himself called, in sub-title, an "Introduction to Phenomenological Philosophy."2 Already in 1913, he distinguished between "pure phenomenology" and "phenomenological philosophy."' The book he published then was called only "A General Introduction to Pure Phenomenology."4 It presents "pure phenomenology" merely as a possible new approach to "the given." In order to give this phenomenological approach a philosophical meaning, it remained to be shown that this approach was necessary. Husserl intended to do this in the "Third Book" of a greater work which is announced in the "Introduction" to the "First Book" published in 1913. This "Third Book," he never wrote. In 1923/24, he tried to fill up this gap by elaborating his lectures on "First Philosophy."'
