An Ethics of Possible Best Life. Considerations on Last Section of Edmund Husserl’s Introduction to Ethics - The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the final part of Edmund Husserl's Lessons on ethics (1920-1924) shows a different theoretical attitude in method and in content, compared to the earlier lessons on ethics. Only in the last lessons does Husserl stress and underline the proper meaning of the ethical imperative as an absolute moral duty, which should however be connected or referred to the relativity of an individual existence, always seen as a singular one. The analysis of this theoretical point is highlighted and discussed as the original element in the phenomenological recovery and transformation of the kantian categorical imperative.
