On The "Hiddenness" Of Husserl

I can hardly understand Phenomenology at times. Needless to say, it's nice to know that even phenomenolgoists don't understand each other:
these circumstances forced me to delve into Husserl's work anew. However, my repeated beginning also remained unsatisfactory, because I couldn't get over a main difficulty. It concerned the simple question how thinking's manner of procedure which called itself 'phenomenology' was carried out. What worried me about this question came from the ambiguity which Husserl's work showed at first glance.
