It used to be whereas interpreting HusserI's Cartesian Meditations that the topic of the current quantity first happened to me. And in a fashion i'm delivering a slightly indirect statement on HusserI's Meditations - "oblique" since it isn't a scientific elucidation of the full textual content. still, it truly is basically with the duty of the Meditations that i'm involved. it truly is there that the antipathy among ordinary ~anguage and HusserI's quest for walk in the park come clearIy into concentration. (Other texts are pointed out insofar as they make clear this primary paintings or illustrate the truth that HusserI didn't considerably regulate his place at the challenge. ) My function this is to extra sharpen that spotlight, exhibiting that the attention in the phenomenological savings is basically language utilizing. operating with the Wittgensteinian perception concerning "pri vate languages," i try to express language-using con sciousness can't successfully divorce itself from its social context and is not able, accordingly, to accomplish the unconventional phenomenological rate reductions. Solipsism, then, is rarely a real challenge, yet nei ther is the removal of all existential commitments a real risk. ultimately, I finish that language-use bridges the excellence among essence and life, the transcendental and the transcendent, the right and the real-making the phenomeno logical technique incapable of delivering the apodictic foundations on which all metaphysics and technology could be rebuilt.

Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.
This publication is a scientific reconstruction of Heidegger's account of time and temporality in Being and Time. the writer locates Heidegger in a practice of "temporal idealism" with its resources in Plotinus, Leibniz, and Kant.

While Husserl is interested in dealing with the essence of consciousness, and will consequently move rapidly to the level of the eidos, the term "transcendental" is not synonymous with the term "universal" : ... as an Ego in the natural attitude, I am likewise and at all times a transcendental Ego, but '" I know about this only by executing phenomenological reduction. 8 The investigating ego is, then, in its own right, a transcendental ego or meaning-giver. 5 6 Husserl, Cartesian Meditations, p.
LANGUAGE AND THE PHENOMENOLOGICAL REDUCTION 3I languages lack words for the intuited data that have been crystalized in other languages. Translators frequently run up against this problem. Either the intuited data is somehow different for varying language groups - a consequence which Husser! would never accept - or there is no reason to suppose any necessary connection between language and intuited data. In the second case, if Husser! is suggesting that the congruence be established by stipulation, several problems arise: (i) Metalanguage.
Logical Investigations, I, p. ) "Objects" do not, however, usually include sensations, particularly in HusserI's early work. Objects of certain sorts were constituted from passively received sensations. (Logical Investigations, I, p. ) 9 10 LANGUAGE AND THE TRANSCENDENTAL REDUCTION 39 sciousness but is present as perceived, as imagined, or as remembered, etc. Thus, the very act of intending an object constitutes its meaning at least to this degree. HusserI's analysis of constitution takes us back one step to investigate the acts of consciousness that make it possible to intend an object perceptually.
