First, anyone who seriously intends to become a philosopher must "once in his life" withdraw into himself and attempt, within himself, to overthrow and build anew all the sciences that, up to then, he has been accepting.



(French, German)

En premier lieu, quiconque veut vraiment devenir philosophe devra une fois dans sa vie se replier sur soi-même et, au-dedans de soi, tenter de renverser toutes les sciences admises jusqu'ici et tenter de les reconstruire.

Fürs erste: Jeder, der ernstlich Philosoph werden will, muss sich einmal im Leben auf sich selbst zurückziehen und in sich den Umsturz aller vorgegebenen Wissenschaften und ihren Neubau versuchen.

Edmund Husserl also said...

I cannot live, experience, think, value, and act in any world which is not in some sense in me, and derives its meaning and truth from me.

Experience by itself is not science.

A new fundamental science, pure phenomenology, has developed within philosophy: This is a science of a thoroughly new type and endless scope. It is inferior in methodological rigor to none of the modern sciences. All philosophical disciplines are rooted in pure phenomenology, through whose development, and through it alone, they obtain their proper force.
