    One thought on “Husserl and Transcendental Intersubjectivity: A Response to the Linguistic-Pragmatic Critique”

    1. A wee bit jargon-filled (in my opinion a common problem in Husserl scholarship) but a readable account of Husserl's view on transcendental intersubjectivity. The final chapter where Zahavi engages with the linguistic-pragmatic account was well argued.
