Download Logische Untersuchungen. Ergänzungsband. Zweiter Teil.: by Edmund Husserl,Ullrich Melle PDF

By Edmund Husserl,Ullrich Melle

Vom Dezember 1913 bis April 1914 arbeitete Husserl an einer Neufassung der VI. Logischen Untersuchung. Der vorliegende Band enthält zum einen die im Zuge dieser Arbeit entstandenen Manuskripte und zum anderen ältere Manuskripte, die zum Teil bis vor der ersten Veröffentlichung der Logischen Untersuchungen im Jahre 1900/1901 zurückreichen. Diese älteren Manuskripte dienten Husserl als fabric für die Neufassung, von der nur das Anfangsstück zu einer Ausarbeitung gelangte.


Im Mittelpunkt von Husserls Arbeiten für die Neufassung steht die Ausdrucks- und Zeichenlehre sowie die Rolle des Ausdrückens im Erkennen. Ist das Ausdrücken selbst ein Erkennen oder setzt es ein Erkennen voraus, und worin besteht seine über die kommunikative Funktion hinausgehende Leistung? Bei dem Versuch diese Fragen zu beantworten entwickelt Husserl eine neue Zeichenlehre, eine neue Bestimmung des Bedeutungsbewusstseins und eine daraus folgende neue Lehre des Erfüllungsgeschehens, d.h. eine neue Erkenntnislehre. Von großer Bedeutung in Husserls Überlegungen erweist sich eine fundamentale Differenzierung im Intentionalitätsbegriff zwischen purpose als Tendenz und purpose als Meinung.


Einen eigenen Schwerpunkt in den Manuskripten für die Neufassung bildet die Frage nach dem Ausdruck des Wünschens bzw. des Wunsches.
