The Phenomenology of Raymond Aron

Reed Davis "The Phenomenology of Raymond Aron,"  European Journal of Political Theory, v2 n4 (2003): 401-413.


This article reviews the influence of Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology on Raymond Aron’s philosophy of history. In trying to create an original synthesis of Husserl’s phenomenology and Max Weber’s neo-Kantianism, Aron fashioned a dialectical logic that ultimately proved to be unstable. This tension accounts for the ambiguity and inconsistencies in some areas of Aron’s thinking.
