It was Husserl who revived the world in the twentieth century as an eminent philosophical question. The concept of world serves to get out of the rigid subject-object scheme, to draw on a unitary dimension of the immense variety of experiences without referring to transcendent entities or metaphysical principles. The text exposes both the general problem of the world in phenomenology and its most famous declension as a “world of life”, where we find a reinterpretation of the fundamental themes of phenomenology: subject, perception, movement, time, concept, totality ... In this way we show how Husserl opened all the main paths of Weltfrage in our age.
