Abstract
When discussing Husserl's phenomenology, it is often divided into separate stages which have no internal relationship between them. Husserl's anti-psychologism can be opposed to phenomenological psychology, anti-historicism to unfolding of inter-subjective historical worlds, the concept of phenomenology as strict science to criticism of science from the perspective of transcendental self-experience, though by looking for contradictions, we will see only separate aspects of phenomenology and will not notice the general structure of phenomenology. In order to understand the meaning of Husserl's phenomenology, it is necessary to find the unifying thread connecting different elements and levels of phenomenology. When discussing the genesis of phenomenological philosophy, we should not emphasise differences between separate stages, but understand what relates them. In this article the whole of Husserl's phenomenology was reconstructed following the common intention of phenomenology which I understood as criticism of objectivism and naturalism. This intention can be found at all stages of Husserl's phenomenology.

Key words
Phenomenological criticism, transcendental empiricism, criticism of psychologism, transcendental consciousness, inter-subjectivity.
