Abstract

29 Examples and Possibles: A Criticism of Husserl's Theory of Free-Phantasy Variation RICHARD M. ZANER Easterwood Professor of Philosophy, Southern Methodist University 1) I am quite cognizant of the kind of dismay still another effort concerned with phenomenological methodology can generate. Still, while it is probably true that there has been some wasted effort expended in trying to unravel the curiosities in this, especially as regards the so-called epoche and reduction, I would not agree that all methodological discus- sions should be consigned to the obituary columns and musty archives of the future. I find in the method of free-phantasy variation, to put my case briefly, a theme of considerable import not only for understanding many of the central issues of phenomenology but also making sense of some philosoph- ical problems which have occupied many philosophers besides Husserl.

I hope only to have been able to make them somewhat clearer than they have hitherto been. 2) Husserl has said much about the method: what it is, its central significance for his work, and how it works in actual practice.
