About this topic
Summary

Husserl’s treatment of intentionality does not just account for how the mind picks out objects in the world. Rather, it accounts for how the object comes to be given for the subject, with the kind of orderliness and permanence, vis-à-vis the changeable materials of consciousness, as to invest it with objectivity and materiality in the first place. The account is developed from the first-person perspective, and it involves a methodical “bracketing” of the world and the objects in it, so as to investigate their constitution in intentional acts. Husserl’s discussions of intentionality contain a variety of more or less arcane technical terms: “constitution,” “the horizons,” “the noesis,” and “the noema,” giving rise to various issues. A discussion in the secondary literature may thus appear to focus on the topic of “constitution,” another, say, on “the horizons,” or on “the noema.” It may be no easy matter to decide whether these are mere terminological differences, or whether we are indeed dealing with important differences in perspective or subject matter.  

Key works An important treatment, with a focus on the ideas of truth and intuitive evidence, is Tugendhat 1967. Smith & McIntyre 1982, and Beyer 2000, bridge the Husserlian discussions of intentionality with ideas current in analytic philosophy of mind and language. Ströker 1984 discusses the development of Husserl’s static account of intentional acts into a genetic account of intentional life, transforming the transcendental ego from an abstract act-pole to a concrete, embodied ego. Drummond 2003 develops a discussion covering the central aspects of (perceptual) intentional experiences, around the idea that the noema is “the perceived as perceived,” (the East Coast interpretation of the noema) and not a kind of intermediary between the act and its object (the West Coast interpretation of the noema).

Carnap's Aufbau and Husserl's works that might have had some influence there, in order to find similarities and differences between them.

    Considering that Husserl identifies passivity as the general principle of genetic dynamics and as given prior to any intentional activity, the original condition of possibility of such passivity must be clarified. Phenomenological analysis can successfully attest the presence of a drive-habituality operating prior to the level of the I, an instinct-character, thus, that raises the question about life as auto-affective capability. In the framework of a universal monadology the latter’s teleological orientation must be questioned in order to avoid that both (...)

A novelty that emerges from Husserlian analyses is the fact that sensory data, rather than being “animated” according to apprehensive schemes, already present a primordial structuring of their own and the perceptive act that concerns them should not be understood as a conferral of meaning addressed to something that would be devoid (...)

The Analyses concerning Passive Synthesis are lessons in which the transcendental sense of phenomenology is reformulated from the notions of passivity, sensation, matter, genesis, and receptivity.

  9. Schelling and Husserl on the Concept of Passive Synthesis.Yicai Ni - 2021 - Phänomenologische Forschungen 1 (1):187-205.
    Both Schelling and Husserl reveal that any attempt to ground objective cognition in subjectivity would encounter the problem of constitution of original experience. They also endorse similar solutions to this very problem. The constitution of original experience is depicted as passive synthesis, i. e., it is the pre-conscious activity of the original ‘I’ (Ur-Ich). However, unlike Schelling’s interpretation of passive synthesis, understood as a theory of quasi-conscious willing (Wollen), Husserl relocates passive synthesis in the transition from instinct to habituality.

    This article offers a thorough and critical reading of Husserl’s Thing and Space. This reading is principally motivated by the effort to methodologically design a phenomenological–topological approach to the research of lived sonic environments. In this book, Husserl lays foundations of phenomenological topology by understanding perceptions as places and defining, consequently, the space as a system of places. The critical reading starts with pointing out the ambiguity of location in Thing and Space, which consists mainly in the insufficient implementation of (...)

    ABSTRACT This essay will explore the constitution of a transcendental theory of space through an examination of the notion of spatial synthesis in the works of Husserl, Paliard, and Deleuze. First, we shall explore the constitution of the sensorial fields in Husserl’s phenomenology. In Husserlian terms, space is not originally an empty form that can eventually be filled with a certain empirical content. Accordingly, the philosopher claims that spatiality is a consequence of the immanent synthesis of sensations. Then, we will (...)

    I argue that Husserl’s account of passive synthesis can be developed into a phenomenology of peripheral experience. Peripheral experiences are not defined by their location in visual space but by their phenomenal and intentional character, by what these experiences are like and how they present things in the world. Further, I argue that peripheral experience is of a piece with our most basic background convictions about the world. As such, the periphery is epistemically neutral, but not therefore empty of meaning. (...)

Both the concept of „flesh“ and „Hyle“ stand for a sensuous principle that underlies the original givenness and solidarity of body and world and I claim that this interaction and the concomitant intertwining of body and place make up the existential dimension of architecture, i.e. the, being-here-in-a-place’. In this connection, I argue that the fact that bodily affective experience endows (...)

Building on Husserl’s concept of Stiftung and reacting to suggestions from ethnology, arts and politics, Merleau- Ponty goes beyond Husserl’s logic of “constitution” by dismantling all “philosophy of consciousness”, and at the same time formulates a deeply innovative notion of institution, whereby this is conceived as rooted in an invisible “power” – the underlying facet of history.

The uncanny fragmentation of passivity, and indeed of the efforts of any genetic phenomenology to think its own origins, brings to the forefront for thought the problematic space (...)

    Object-hood is central to Husserl’s work, yet he employs several different notions of object-hood without clarifying the differences; his work thus offers rich and nuanced reflections on object-hood, but in a theoretically underdeveloped, at times even paradoxical, form. This paper aims to develop Husserl’s theory of objects systematically. In order to achieve this I distinguish five object-concepts operative in Husserl’s phenomenology and prove that they are not co-extensional. I also argue that they form a layer in terms of transcendental constitution, (...)

These detail various epistemological and metaphysical difficulties and potential paradoxes encumbering the notion of the pre-given world.

It is because of this that in our everyday meaningful comportments, we are always intentionally correlated with what is “Vorhanden” for (...)

In the context of phenomenological reduction, constitution has to be understood as unveiling the universal and necessary essences.

In Ideas II, the phenomenologist explains how the constitution of nature, psyche, and spirit occurs. This process begins (...)

    In Ideas II and other works, Edmund Husserl gives a constitutional analysis of material reality.

The author focuses his attention on two problems: that of the ontological basis under an idea of “intentionale Inexistenz” of Brentano and that of the constitution of an individual thing in phenomenology of Husserl. The analysis discloses methodical and metaphysical assumptions of intentional analyses of Brentano and of Husserl.

    Purpose. The article suggested for consideration is aimed at clarifying the shift in human perception from the spatial turn announced by Michel Foucault, to a performative turn. The performative turn has an anthropological footing. It is based on the all-round investigation of the body’s principal role for cultural existence, as a result of a reverse reaction to artificial conceptual gap between space and body, which basically means ignoring the embodiment theme. An example of such theoretical deformation was Edmund Husserl’s “anthropology (...)

  43. Passivity in Aesthetic Experience: Husserlian and Enactive Perspectives.Tone Roald & Simon Høffding - 2019 - Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology 6 (1):1-20.
    ABSTRACTThis paper argues that the Husserlian notion of “passive synthesis” can make a substantial contribution to the understanding of aesthetic experience. The argument is based on two empirical cases of qualitative interview material obtained from museum visitors and a world-renowned string quartet, which show that aesthetic experience contains an irreducible dimension of passive undergoing and surprise. Analyzing this material through the lens of passive syntheses helps explain these experiences, as well as the sense of subject–object fusion that occurs in some (...)

    Husserl, in his doctrine of categories, distinguishes what he calls regions from what he calls formal categories. The former are most general domains, while the latter are topic-neutral concepts that apply across all domains. Husserl’s understanding of these notions of category is here discussed in detail. It is, moreover, argued that similar notions of category may be recognized in Carnap’s Der logische Aufbau der Welt.

  45. Geometric and Intuitive Space in Husserl.Vincenzo Costa - 2017 - In Felice Masi & Maria Catena (eds.), The Changing Faces of Space. Springer Verlag.
    Moving from the reformulation of the meaning of geometry, achieved in the first half of the Nineteenth Century, which also implied a new definition of the relationship between formal and empirical understanding of the space, Husserl starts, since the Philosophy of arithmetic, a deep reflection on the definition of space, which would have led to a new philosophical theory of Euclidean geometry. Husserl took the view that the clarification of scientific concepts must be made back to the intuitive ground from (...)

  46. Vliv Všímavosti Na Afektivitu. Fenomenologický Výklad Buddhistické Meditace Vipassanā.Jan Puc - 2016 - Ostium 12 (4).
    The paper shows connection between the cultivation of attention in Buddhist meditation vipassanā and the phenomenological theory of affectivity. At first, it shortly describes the way how the praxis of meditation achieves progress of mindfulness. Then, this experience is interpreted from the point of view of Husserl’s theory of passive constitution. Finally, it describes mindfulness in terms of the boundary between activity and passivity of human being in the world.

  47. The Ground of Experience: Implications in the Constitution of Judgments in Husserl’s Phenomenology.Marcio Junglos - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):333-352.
    This research will attain mainly in the work of Husserl called Experience and Judgment. This book traces the possibility of a common ground for judgments in the way that it can raise new perspectives, facing its limits and variations. Husserl fosters an implication between the Ego and the world through the living experience in the process of constitution itself. Therefore, every abstraction, imagination, subjectivity, objectivity and even hallucinations take a stand on the same ground and follow some same identic logical (...)

    The problem of embodiment and that of the constitution of the lived body are central to the Husserlian phenomenology. Husserl’s endeavor to develop a theory of intersubjectivity and his attempt to avoid the solipsistic conundrum depend on his ability to solve the riddle of embodiment. Nevertheless, Husserl struggled until the late thirties to find an adequate account of the constitution of the body, without much success. In this paper I try to show with the help of Merleau-Ponty, Derrida and Figal (...)

    The paper analyses Husserl’s critique of Kant’s regressive transcendental method while trying to show that at the basis of it is an opposite conception of the conditions of possibility of experience: whereas for Kant experience is structured by the subject through intellectual forms, for Husserl it has a structure before the intervention of the subject. Therefore–contrary to Iso Kern’s opinion–the contrast between Kant and Husserl cannot be traced back to mere methodical divergences.

    Basing on the Michel Foucault’s description of the philosophical modernity given by him in his famous book Words and Things, I found that there is the compliance between the beginning of the Modern philosophy and the Kant’s discovery of the a priori synthesis. It is also well known that Husserl uses the term “synthesis” in his phenomenology. Thus, the Husserl’s phenomenology could belong to the same branch of philosophy as the Kant’s philosophy. To verify this hypothesis, I analyze the views (...)
