transcendentalism vs. naturalism / objectivism (Husserl)

Naturalism (and
‘objectivism’) which begins from the presumption of a given ‘ready-made world’ is
opposed to transcendentalism which Husserl characterizes as follows:

Transcendentalism, on the other hand, says: the ontic meaning (der Seinssinn)
of the pregiven life-world is a subjective structure (subjektives Gebilde), it is
the achievement (Leistung) of experiencing, prescientific life. (Crisis § 14,
p. 69; VI 70)
