Indeed, once the content of several as yet untranslated works by Husserl are fully considered by Ferrarello, it becomes clear that the project of phenomenology itself is part of a larger ethical and social telos and it is from this ethical perspective that we might come to understand the ultimate purpose of phenomenology.
