Husserl’s Transcendental Phenomenology as a Philosophical Foresight of the Information Era

In this paper, we suggest an updated idea about the development of philosophy in the twentieth century. Its historical meaning is in the transition from metaphysics to transcendentalism, from the realistic model of the world to the postmodernist one. We demonstrate that transcendental phe-nomenology is a forerunner of structural and in-formation revolutions. It developed the catego-ries that appear speculative counter-parts of the conceptual apparatus of informationalism. The “keyword” of phenomenology is noe-ma = a thing of consciousness = a mental con-sciousness thing, which is information about a thing. Transcenden-tal-cognitive modelling turns all things into num-bers. It results in a denial of humanity and their life-world by technoscience. Husserl seems to be the first ideologist and, at the same time, the first criticist of the Transmodern era.
