German philosopher Edmund Gustav Albrecht Husserl is born in Prossnitz, Moravia.

Generally associated with the modern development of phenomenology (a term he coins), Husserl will try to create out of it a pure, non-empirical science. Husserl will focus on studying the nature of consciousness and how a conscious person can be conscious of their own consciousness.

Edmund Husserl will thus critique traditional attempts to understand the use of language through personal experience. He argues instead that naturalism is of no value and that insight is the best method to use here.
