OKTEM, Ülker. Husserl's evidence problem. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.1, pp.1-14. ISSN 1445-7377.
This paper examines the concept of evidence, with specific focus on the problem of evidence in Husserl 's phenomenology. How this problem was dealt with and resolved by philosophers such as Plato, Descartes and Kant is compared and contrasted with Husserl's approach, and the implications of the solution offered by Husserl discussed. Finally, in light of the issues outlined, it is assessed whether or not Husserl can be said possibly to have been philosophically inclined towards notions such as idealism, empiricism, solipsism and scepticism.
