||Consciousness is the direct subject matter of Husserl’s phenomenological investigations. All other topics and issues are investigated by way of studying aspects of consciousness. Husserl’s conception of consciousness is rich and multi-faceted, packing many more aspects than the current notion of a phenomenal consciousness, or what it is like to be in a mental state. Thus, on the Husserlian view, intentionality is an aspect of consciousness, a product of the functioning of different kinds of sensuous matter, motivational forces, and ego-activities. While there is a tradition, in modern philosophy, of regarding consciousness as a kind of container for ideas or other mental states, the Husserlian conception of consciousness, viz., as intentional, has been noted as having provided an alternative to the views associated with the container metaphor. Of the different aspects of Husserl’s view, time-consciousness, self-awareness and other-awareness are among the ones to have generated the most interest and literature.
