Being and Time: Some Aspects of the Ego's Involvement in His Mental Life

In Fred Kersten & Richard M. Zaner (eds.), Phenomenology: Continuation and Criticism Essays in Memory of Dorion Cairns. Springer. pp. 105-113 (1973)

The most obvious cases of ego-involvement in conscious life are those which Husserl calls conscious acts or cogitationes.[2] They are the most obvious cases because they are the ones in which the ego explicitly involves himself in some way ; they exhibit the character of being engaged in by the ego or having been engaged in by him. This ego-quality or character belongs demonstrably to every conscious process in which the ego engages or lives. In the ego's conscious life, the life to which his, her, or its acts belong, there also occur mental or intentive processes in which the ego does not or did not engage, and these Husserl calls passive or non-actional processes as contrasted with the active or actional processes characterized by egoengagement
