Husserl himself thought of Logical Investigations (1900-1901) to represent his `breakthrough' to phenomenology, and it stands proud not just as certainly one of Husserl's most crucial works, yet as a key textual content in 20th century philosophy. through predating the cut up among `analytical philosophy' and `continental philosophy', Logical Investigations is still of specific curiosity to these thinking about the potential of a rapprochement among the 2 traditions. The paintings had an important effect at the next improvement of phenomenology, and it additionally left its mark on such varied disciplines as linguistics, comparative literature, psychology, cognitive technological know-how, and arithmetic.
This quantity commemorates the centenary of Logical Investigations by way of subjecting the paintings to a accomplished severe research. It includes new contributions by way of top students addressing essentially the most primary analyses to be present in the book.

Logic is about good reasoning: valid inference, either deduction (preserving truth) or induction (proffering probability). ) is a well-defmed system oflogic, specifying exactly what forms of inference are sanctioned in a well-defmed symbolic language. What role then does logic play-what is logical-in Husserl's Logical Investigations?

First, it should be considered that his analysis is ruled by the aim of a philosophy of logic concerned with the idea of theory as a deductive system of propositions, which are naturally supposed to be descriptive statements. But the question is precisely of the possibility, ofthe autonomy and limits of such a point of view. In any case, if such a point of view is at all possible, as suggested at the end of the Prolegomena, it is clear that "it is meaning and not the act of meaning (Bedeutung und nicht Bedeuten), concept and proposition, and not presentation and judgement, that are the standard in science".

This question stands necessarily at the core of any "logical investigation". And it is the question involved in the question of the "descriptiveness" of our sentences in general. According to Aristotle's De Interpretatione, 4, not every sentence (logos) is declarative ( apophantikos ). A sentence is declarative if and only if it has a truth-value (either the True or the False). All sentences do not have this property. For instance, a prayer does not have it, being neither true nor false. The treatise De Interpretatione explicitly puts aside utterances such as prayers, questions, etc.
