Stephen Mulhall, Times Higher Education Supplement
'Executed with scholarly brio and elegance ... Moran has put together a comprehensive - but not tiresome - presentation of Husserl, boasting a vast and updated array of sources deftly employed in exploring the thought and the person behind Phenomenology ... Moran commands Husserl's oeuvre convincingly, using archival material, published Nachlass, and epistolary sources for the sake of making the reader well acquainted with this "man of infinite tasks". One will not find here a languid repetition of famous passages and formulas, but rather an intelligent, systematic recast of Husserl's thought, exhibiting many a precious jewel not found in the more popular, translated works. Moran also does the reader a favor by presenting Husserl in relation to his contemporaries and his followers, as well as in dialogue with our contemporaries, for whom Husserlian Phenomenology still has much to offer.'
