Summary Edmund Husserl, founder of the phenomenological movement, is usually read as an idealist in his metaphysics and an instrumentalist in his philosophy of science. In Nature's Suit, Lee Hardy argues that both views represent a serious misreading of Husserl's texts. Drawing upon the full range of Husserl's major published works together with material from Husserl's unpublished manuscripts, Hardy develops a consistent interpretation of Husserl's conception of logic as a theory of science, his phenomenological account of truth and rationality, his ontology of the physical thing and mathematical ob.
