Husserl Archives Leuven

International Centre for Phenomenological Research

International Centre for Phenomenological Research

The Husserl Archives in Leuven is responsible for the publication of the philosophical work of Edmund Husserl. It was established in 1939 when, facing the threat that because of his Jewish origin, Husserl's work might be destroyed by the National Socialist authorities, Professor H.L. Van Breda successfully brought Husserl's estate secretly from Freiburg to Leuven.

The chief mission of the Archives remains research into and documentation of Husserl's estate. The Archives receives visitors from around the world interested in consulting Husserl's manuscripts, or the extensive Phenomenology library of the research centre. Thanks to activities such as the publication of monographs and the organisation of international conferences, the Husserl-Archives plays a central role in the dissemination and development of the phenomenological movement.
