He appears to be like at how time is basically expressed in narrative fiction, relatively via use of tenses, viewpoint, and voice. He applies this method of 3 books which are, in a feeling, stories approximately time: Virgina Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway; Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain; and Marcel Proust's Remembrance of items Past.

Finally, during these years he formulated the first explicit statements of his new philosophical method. There are three lines along which Husserl’s development in these years can be traced: the continued analysis of meaning (Bedeutung) and sense (S in n ); the notion of ep istem ological critique; and the a nalyses of the consciousness of inner time. If we return first to the question of meaning, we find that by 1908 Husserl had come to think that exploring the “objective” or “ontic” dimension of meaning led to a more properly “phenomenological” account of meaning.
T hey point to the need for regressive inquiries into the constitution of sense, inquiries that reveal the layering of sense over time and its development in intersubjective communities of inquirers. However, they continue to neglect in large part the historicality of the experiences themselves. Husserl addresses this question of the historicality of experience most explicitly in his last work, Die Krisis der europäischen Wissenschaften und die transzendentale Phänomenologie (The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology), published in 1936, as well as in the texts collected and published posthumously in Analysen zur passiven Synthesis (1918–1926) (included in the translation Analyses Concerning Passive and Active Synthesis: Lectures on Transcendental Logic) and Erfahrung und Urteil (Experience and Judgment).
Although this development, clearly foreshadowed in the years from 1907 to 1911, is not to be found in Ideas I itself, it becomes a central aspect of Husserl’s work in the 1920s and 1930s. The Years at Freiburg (1916–1938) In 1916 Husserl was appointed the successor to Heinrich Rickert and Professor Ordinarius at the Albert-Ludwigs Universität in Freiburg. Despite— or perhaps because of— the tumult of World War I, H usserl continued to develop his analyses of reason. The 1920s are marked first by a series of courses on transcendental logic in which Husserl analyzes the emergence of sense in our experience of objects.
