Example text

We perceive also the rainbow and the blue sky. What the thing and also the phantom reveal to our perception is merely its sensorial schema, as Husser! calls it, which changes continuously with the aspects under which we experience it. " The reality of the thing, its materiality, cannot be referred to the sensorial schema alone. This schema changes if HUSSERL'S IDEAS, VOLUME II 19 the circumstances change, but the changing schemata are apprehended as manifestations of a determined unity and their changes as being dependent upon the pertinent real circumstances.

The continuity of the stream of thought, Husserl points out, is based on the character of temporality as the relational form which necessarily connects experiences with experiences. In necessary continuity each "now" transforms itself into a "just now" ; another "now" matches the former "now" and becomes a "just now" matching the former "just now" and so on. The actual present, therefore, is not an instantaneity, but the persisting form for continuously changing contents. Actual impression is nothing else than the limiting phase of a continuous series of retentions, or, in the other direction, of a continuous series of anticipations, both chains to be interpreted as continuous successions of intentional relationships.

Psyche is from the outset always incarnated, and that means that HUSSERL'S IDEAS, VOLUME II 2I it appears as an element of nature in connection with a material thing, the animal or human body.
