This essay deals with Edmund Husserl’s reflections on the “crisis” problem in contrast with Martin Heidegger’s and Sigmund Freud’s positions on the same issue at that time. We state that the Husserlian philosophy of intersubjectivity does not provide enough foundation for a social program which rises to the diagnosis of the crisis made by the author. We affirm as well that this philosophy is based on a notion of subject which needs to be completed and to some extent corrected by Freud’s discoveries of psychoanalysis. Lastly, we show that the Husserlian philosophy of the life-world gives a consistent solution to the “crisis” problem compared to the solutions given by another authors linked to the phenomenological movement like Martin Heidegger.
