Phenomenology is the study of appearance as such. It is a branch of both Ontology and Epistemology, since appearing is being known. By an ‘appearance’ is meant any existent which impinges on consciousness, anything cognized, irrespective of any judgment as to whether it be ‘real’ or ‘illusory.’ The evaluation of a particular appearance as a reality or an illusion is a complex process, involving inductive and deductive logical principles and activities. Opinion has to earn the status of strict knowledge.

Logical Philosophy: A Compendium brings together five works by Avi Sion published in 2002-06, namely: Phenomenology (2003), Volition and Allied Causal Concepts (2004), Meditations (2006), Ruminations (2005), and Buddhist Illogic (2002). These works together define what may be termed ‘Logical Philosophy’, i.e. philosophical discourse distinguished by its steadfast reliance on inductive and deductive logic to resolve epistemological and ontological issues.

The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms: The phenomenology of knowledge

The Symbolic Forms has long been considered the greatest of Cassirer's works. Into it he poured all the resources of his vast learning about language and myth, religion, art, and science--the various creative symbolizing activities and constructions through which man has expressed himself and given intelligible objective form to this experience. "These three volumes alone (apart from Cassirer's other papers and books) make an outstanding contribution to epistemology and to the human power of abstraction. It is rather as if 'The Golden Bough' had been written in philosophical rather than in historical terms."--F.I.G. Rawlins, Nature

Appearance and Sense

Phenomenology as the Fundamental Science and Its Problems

Author: Gustav Shpet

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9401132925

Category: Philosophy

Page: 196

Despite, or perhaps better by virtue of, its very brevity, Appearance and Sense is a difficult text to read and understand, particularly if we make the attempt independently of Husserl's Ideas I. This is certainly at least in part owing to the intent behind Shpet's work. On the one hand it strives to present Husserl' s latest views to a Russian philosophical audience not yet conversant with and, in all likelihood, not even aware of, his transcendental idealist turn. With this aim any reading would perforce be exacting. Yet, on the other hand, Shpet has made scant concession to his public. Indeed, his text is even more compressed, especially in the crucial areas dealing with the sense-bestowing feature of consciousness, than Husserl' s own. For all that, Shpet has not bequeathed to us simply an abbreviated paraphrase nor a selective commentary on Ideas I, although at many points it is just that. Rather, the text on the whole is a critical engagement with Husserl' s thought, where Shpet among other things refonnulates or at least presents Husserl's phenomenology from the perspective of hoping to illuminate a traditional philosophical problem in a radical manner. Since Husserl's text was published only in 1913 and Shpet's appeared sometime during 1914, the latter must have been conceived, thought through, and written in remarkable haste. Indeed, Shpet had already finished a first draft and was busy with a revision of it by the end of 1913.

Phenomenology and skepticism

essays in honor of James M. Edie

Author: James M. Edie,Brice R. Wachterhauser

Publisher: Northwestern Univ Pr

This volume of essays honors the extensive contributions of James M. Edie, the founding editor of the Studies in Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy series, to the development of phenomenological thought. Grounded in Edie's emphasis on Husserl's confrontation with skepticism, the essays provide an in-depth analysis of Husserlian and neo-Husserlian responses to skepticism and relativism. Led by an informative introduction by the volume editor, Brice R. Wachterhauser, and featuring essays by thirteen contributors, including Edie himself, this volume confirms both Edie's lasting influence and the continued relevance of Husserlian thought in contemporary philosophical debate.

5 Die äußere Wahrnehmung ist eine beständige Prätention, etwas zu leisten, was sie ihrem eigenen Wesen nach zu leisten außerstande ist. Also gewissermaßen ein Widerspruch gehört zu ihrem Wesen. Was damit gemeint ist, wird Ihnen alsbald klar werden, wenn Sie schauend zusehen, wie sich der objektive Sinn 10 als Einheit dn> den unendlichen Mannigfaltigkeiten möglicher Erscheinungen darstellt und wie die kontinuierliche Synthese näher aussieht, welche als Deckungseinheit denselben Sinn er scheinen läßt, und wie gegenüber den faktischen, begrenzten Erscheinungsabläufen doch beständig ein Bewußtsein von dar- 15 über hinausreichenden, von immer neuen Erscheinungsmöglich keiten besteht. Worauf wir zunächst achten, ist, daß der Aspekt, die perspek tivische Abschattung, in der jeder Raumgegenstand unweigerlich erscheint, ihn immer nur einseitig zur Erscheinung bringt. Wir 20 mögen ein Ding noch so vollkommen wahrnehmen, es fällt nie in der Allseitigkeit der ihm zukommenden und es sinnendinglich ausmachenden Eigenheiten in die Wahrnehmung. Die Rede von diesen und jenen Seiten des Gegenstandes, die zu wirklicher Wahrnehmung kommen, ist unvermeidlich. Jeder Aspekt, jede 25 noch so weit fortgeführte Kontinuität von einzelnen Abschat tungen gibt nur Seiten, und das ist, wie wir uns überzeugen, kein bloßes Faktum: Eine äußere Wahrnehmung ist undenkbar, die ihr Wahrgenommenes in ihrem sinnendinglichen Gehalt erschöpfte, ein Wahrnehmungsgegenstand ist undenkbar, der in einer abge- 30 schlossenen Wahrnehmung im strengsten Sinn allseitig, nach der Allheit seiner sinnlich anschaulichen Merkmale gegeben sein könnte.

Restoring the foundations of epistemic justification

a direct realist and conceptualist theory of foundationalism

Against various detractors (e.g. Wilfred Sellars, Donald Davidson, etc.), this book develops a foundationalist theory of epistemic justification. In contrast with Laurence BonJour and borrowing from John McDowell, the essential argument is that conceptualized perpetual experience provides a non-doxastic foundation for perceptual beliefs about physical objects.
