The aim of this essay is to outline a novel way of approaching and reading (and ultimately: writing about) Husserl’s phenomenological thinking. Although Husserl’s phenomenological philosophy is rarely considered from either the point of its materiality in language or as a form of discourse, this paper examines how Husserl conceived of his thinking as requiring an original form of writing and fashioning of philosophical discourse. Husserl’s legendary research manuscripts and the unique style of their composition (in his own kind of shorthand) are essential to his redefinition of philosophy as a modernist project of philosophical research. As this paper argues, when approached from the materialization of his writing and form of discourse, Husserl’s phenomenology can be seen as a type of “Minor Philosophy,” by which is here understood, a type of doing philosophy that struggles to create novel philosophical concepts within established – inherited and institutionalized – dominant languages of philosophy.
