das Sein des Seienden) awaits careful and detailed analysis in view of the increased interest in Husserl, due largely to the continuing publication of his hitherto inaccessible manuscripts.1 After undergoing the experience of Heidegger, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty, we can no longer make a simple return to the founder of phenomenology. But we may have to recoup certain fundamental issues and perspectives that in the wake of Husserl seem to have lost the emphasis they rightly deserve. In his last work, Die Krisis der europäischen Wissenschaften, Husserl complained that students were learning their phenomenology not from a careful study of his own fundamental writings but rather from his students, such as Martin Heidegger.2 What motive inspired him to write these lines is anyone's surmise. Heidegger specialists may be amused at it, regarding this complaint as the result of the master's preoccupation with his own thinking (and his confessed inability to follow the thought of others.) Freudians might well see in this the natural resentment of father against son, a son about to displace him. However, our purpose here is not to play this kind of parlor game. Instead we shall try to see what it was about "being" that so concerned and displeased Husserl." />
