Husserl’s ultimate goal was to understand the connection between pure logic and concrete processes of thinking

Rather, Husserl’s quest was not for certainty but for the founding of the conditions for the possibility of knowledge.

That is, he was not searching for an answer to the question: How do we know the tree is in the quad?

He was seeking an answer to the question: How does it come about that consciousness can make contact with the tree in the quad?

This is what was meant above when mention was made that Husserl’s ultimate goal was to understand the connection between pure logic and concrete processes of thinking.
