Welcome to Wesenschau!


The electronic Journal Wesenschau has been set up to serve as an international forum for Transcendental Logic and Comparative Philosophy. Submitted articles, reviews and scholarly communications will be considered for publication on a regular basis by a board of distinguished peer-reviewers and editors, both academics and established scholars in the field of metaphysics, epistemology, transcendental and formal logic, history and methodology of science. The focal point of the Journal, as the name suggests, is the Intellectual Intuition in its various philosophical representations and cultural metamorphoses. This site is also a meeting point and general source of information about Husserl, Transcendental Phenomenology, and Phenomenological Philosophy.

§ 86. Zufälligkeit der empirischen Allgemeinheiten und apriorische Notwendigkeit

Empirische Allgemeinheiten, so sagten wir, haben einen Umfang wirklicher und real möglicher Einzelheiten. Gewonnen zunächst auf Grund der Wiederholung gleicher und dann weiter bloß ähnlicher, in faktischer Erfahrung gegebener Gegenstände, beziehen sie sich nicht nur auf diesen begrenzten und sozusagen auszählbaren Umfang von wirklichen Einzelheiten, aus denen sie ursprünglich gewonnen wurden; sondern sie haben in der Regel einen Horizont, der präsumptiv vorweist auf weitere Erfahrung von Einzelheiten, die in freier Beliebigkeit bei Erschließung dieses präsumptiven Seinshorizontes gewonnen werden können. Wir können uns, wenn es sich um Realitäten der vorgegebenen unendlichen Welt handelt, eine beliebige Anzahl weitergebbarer Einzelheiten denken, die diese empirische Allgemeinheit als reale Möglichkeit mit umgreift. Der Umfang ist dann ein unendlich offener, und doch ist die Einheit der empirisch gewonnenen Spezies und höheren Gattung eine »zufällige«. Das heißt, ein zufällig gegebenes Einzelnes war der Ausgang der Begriffsbildung, und sie führte über die gleichfalls zufälligen Gleichheiten und Ähnlichkeiten - zufällig, weil das Ausgangsglied der Vergleichung ein zufälliges, in der faktischen Erfahrung gegebenes, war.

 Analytic: Incompatibilities in the Formal Description of Buddhist Logic
Logic

Douglas DUNSMORE DAYE

Metalogical Incompatibilities
in the Formal Description of Buddhist Logic
(Nyaya)

Introduction and Background. In this paper I wish to consider two specific aspects of comparative logic. First, I wish to briefly sketch and comment upon the general post-war (rather Procrustean) methodological background regarding the Sanskrit ablative case (AC) in Buddhist logical texts and the use of the functor of material implication (MI) to describe the AC. Secondly, I wish to demonstrate the incompatibility of MI and AC by contextually examining truth-functionality, and the incompatible concepts of Stephan Toulmin's full-warrant and the Buddhist protometalogical rule of the Three Forms of the Justification (trairupyahetu).

The technical literature of philosophy of logic is saturated with warnings against assuming the interchangeability of "if p then q," "q because of p" and "p implies q." I do not wish to re-trace that ground again; rather I wish to suggest a new instance of incompatibility between "implies" and "because" (AC) based solely on the metalogical incompatibilities found in the works of Toulmin and the (supposed) author of the sixth century, the Indian Buddhist logician, Dignaga.

 Discussions: Modern Science, Husserl Phenomenology, and Dzogchen
Comparative

Piet Hut

Exploring Actuality
Through Experiment and Experience

Institute for Advanced Study
Princeton, NJ 08540


A comparison is presented of three approaches to an understanding of 'what is actual': modern science, Husserlian phenomenology, and Tibetan Buddhist Dzog Chen. In each approach, experiment is the central touch stone, while the theoretical 'foundations' are dynamically changing. The roles that consciousness plays in each of the three approaches are contrasted, in a comparative analysis that provides a fresh look at the question of the possibility of a scientific study of consciousness.

 Reviews: The Phenomenological Method
Methodology

Edmund Husserl

The Phenomenological Method

Selected Texts I

 

This small paperback (84x54/32) extensively foreworded by Klaus Held (pp. 5-51) contains some landmarks in the methodological evolution of Husserl. First comes The Refutation of Psychologism (from Die Logische Untersuchungen), then Fact and Essence (Tatsache und Wesen, from Ideen I), followed by The Fundamental Phenomenological Envision, again from the first volume of Ideen zu einer reinen Phaenomenologie, etc.), then we have excerpts from the German version of the Encyclopedia Britannica article on Phenomenology, some sections form the Formal and Transcendental Logic, namely, chapter One on the Psychologism and the transcendental substantiation of Logic, and finally Seeing Essences via Eidetic Variations, from a manuscript entitled Erfahrung und Urteil.

Über Sinn und Bedeutung

Zeitschrift für Philosophie und philosophische Kritik,

www.husserl.info/review-3525333773-de.html

Die Gleichheit[1]  fordert das Nachdenken heraus durch Fragen, die sich daran knüpfen und nicht ganz leicht zu beantworten sind. Ist sie eine Beziehung? eine Beziehung zwischen Gegenständen? oder zwischen Namen oder Zeichen für Gegenstände? Das letzte hatte ich in meiner Begriffsschrift angenommen. Die Gründe, die dafür zu sprechen scheinen, sind folgende: a = a und a = b sind offenbar Sätze von verschiedenem Erkenntniswert: a = a gilt a priori und ist nach Kant analytisch zu nennen, während Sätze von der Form a = b oft sehr wertvolle Erweiterungen unserer Erkenntnis enthalten und a priori nicht immer zu begründen sind. Die Entdeckung, daß nicht jeden Morgen eine neue Sonne aufgeht, sondern immer dieselbe, ist wohl eine der folgenreichsten in der Astronomie gewesen. Noch jetzt ist die Wiedererkennung eines kleinen Planeten oder eines Kometen nicht immer etwas Selbstverständliches.

 Awards: Horizons of Transcendental Phenomenology
Methodology

Phenomenology Center

An Outstanding Work in Phenomenology

Donn Welton, The Other Husserl: The Horizons of Transcendental Phenomenology. Studies in Continental Thought. Indiana University Press, 2001.

  • Paperback: 520 pages; Dimensions (in inches): 1.18 x 8.98 x 5.96
  • Publisher: Indiana University Press; Reprint edition (July 1, 2002)
  • ISBN: 025321558
  • In this comprehensive study, Welton presents the main outlines of the systematic and chronological development of Husserl's phenomenological philosophy. In doing so, he aims to counteract a prevalent, overly simplified interpretation, based upon Husserl's earlier published works. Welton's strategy is to show concretely that Husserl's posthumously published works present the basis for elaborating a far superior system of transcendental phenomenology.

    Sometimes Welton frames the question of Husserl's development in terms of system, sometimes in terms of method. In general, he seems to take system and method (in a very broad sense) as virtually synonymous, system being the overall framework for comprehsnsively integrating various interrelated sub-fields of descriptive analysis and diverse findings.

     Reviews: Intentionality and Alayavijnana
    Comparative

    Plamen GRADINAROV

    Intentionality and Alayavijnana

    discussion notes on the
    Buddhist Phenomenology by Dan Lusthaus

    What follows is a small part of my review of Dan Lusthaus' "Buddhist Phenomenology" (hereafter referred to as BP), which review has never been published as I found difficulties writing a book review that may eventually turn to be longer than the book reviewed. Only the first 15 pages of the book "inflicted" 25 pages review text. Hence I am offering a small excerpt from the review concerning the "intentionality" in the context of alayavijnana in the hope that it will contribute to the general discussion on the intentional nature of consciousness and its philosophical captures throughout the ages and cultures. All diacritical marks have been intentionally omitted for the sake of this online publication.

     New Books: The Philosophy of Merleau-Ponty
    Philosophy

    Thinking of the Sensible

    The Merleau-Ponty's A-Philosophy

    by Mauro Carbone
    May 2004, Northwestern, 136 pp.

    In this first English publication of a well-known and widely respected Italian scholar, readers will encounter the preeminent interpreter of the works of Maurice Merleau-Ponty engaged in a dialogue of critical concern to contemporary philosophy. In subtle and sensitive language eminently suited to the style and substance of Merleau-Ponty's own writings, Mauro Carbone fashions four essays around a central theme-the relations of the sensible and the intelligible, and of philosophy and non-philosophy-that occupied Merleau-Ponty in his later work.
