Individual traditions are prior to social or intersubjective traditions, but all tradition involves carrying over of doxic, axiotic, and volitional sense from the past to the present and future. Social tradition involves empathy and communication, while individual tradition is based chiefly on forms of experiencing.

Nine short manuscript fragments by Dorion Cairns, one of Husserl’s closest followers, are edited and presented here from Cairns’ Nachlass , which are held at the Center for Advanced Research on Phenomenology, Inc. at the University of Memphis. The fragments address aspects of method for phenomenological psychology, namely: the natural theoretical attitude, reflection, psychological epochē and reduction, eidetic and factual description, understanding, and intersubjective verification.
These components are distinguishable in verbal expressing: (1) the judging act, (2) the sense expressed by (3) the verbal expression, Which is embodied in (4) sounds/marks, And (5) the thing(s) which the expression is about. The essay focuses on verbal expressions showing that they are ideal individuals: they remain identifiably the same through variations in their embodiments. While real individuals "exemplify" universals, Verbal expressions are "embodied" by real sounds or marks. Expressions, Like melodies or folk dances, Combine ideality with mutability (...) (historical change): they are thus ideal individuals and neither "real" individuals nor ideal "universals". (shrink)
"La significación filosófica fundamental de las Logische Untersunchungen de Husserl" El autor se enfrenta a la obra husserliana que ha sido caracterizada como el tratado filosófico del presente siglo que ha ejercido la mayor influencia en los pensadores posteriores. ¿Qué significa ser fenomenólogo desde la perspectiva de este legado? Husserl no asume ninguna creencia metafísica; no es un idealista aunque describa objetos referidos a la conciencia; no es realista aunque entienda a la naturaleza como algo independiente de esa misma conciencia. (...) Más bien, el fenomenólogo lleva una doble vida: por un lado, vive como un hombre en sus creencias cotidianas más o menos bien fundadas, al mismo tiempo que, como heredero de la tradición inagurada por Husserl, pone entre paréntesis esas mismas creencias para describirlas. "The fundamental philosophical significance of the Logische Untersunchungen by Husserl" The author faces the husserlian work that has been characterized as the philosophical treatise of the present century that has exercised the biggest influence in the later thinkers. What does mean to be a phenomenological thinker from the perspective of this legacy? Husserl doesn"™t assume any metaphysical belief; he is not an idealist although it describes objects referred to the conscience; he is not realistic although he understands the nature like something independent of that conscience. Rather, the phenomenological thinker takes a double life: at one hand, he lives more or less as a man in their daily beliefs well founded, at the same time that, as inheritor of the tradition openend up by Husserl, it puts among parenthesis those beliefs to describe them.
