Please respond to the following question in approximately two pages (double spaced). (Needless to say this should be your own original work.)
In the opening paragraphs of Ideas §13 (pp. 26-7) Husserl makes a distinction between ``specialization'' and ``de-formalization.'' As an example he discusses (a) the relationship between the essence triangle and the genus spatial shape vs. (b) the relationship between the essence triangle and the form essence. How does this example relate to the distinction? What is it supposed to show? Why is it supposedly clear that relationships (a) and (b) are not the same?
