Schutzs basic contributions issue from a critical synthesis of Husserls phenomenology and Webers sociology of understanding. He proceeds on the basis of the irreducible souce of all human knowledge in the immediate experiences of the conscious, alert, and active individual. In this volume Helmut Wagner has selected and skillfully correlated various passages both from Schutzs book The Phenomenology of the Social World and from his scattered papers and essays.
