In the following paper we will seek to understand what Edmund Husserl, in his second Logical Investigation , refers to as “idealism”, against the backdrop of Rudolf Hermann Lotze’s interpretation of Plato’s doctrine of Ideas in the third book of his Logic . This will raise not only the question of Husserl’s indebtedness to Lotze with respect to the Ideenhlehre in terms of Geltung , but first and foremost that of the “Platonism” of the idealism defended in his first masterpiece.
