Husserl and his influence on me

Alfred Schütz

pp. 124-129

The editors of this volume invited former students of Husserl to give not only an account of the influence the thought of this great philosopher had upon their own development and work but also to report their recollections of his ways of teaching and the philosophical contacts they had with him. I should like to follow the editors' suggestions and re-evoke my fond memories of my meetings with Husserl during the last years of his life, although I am not sure whether I am entitled to call myself his personal student. I met the great thinker for the first time in 1932 when he had long ago ceased to deliver courses at the university and twelve years after I had finished my studies at the University of Vienna.
