Abstract This paper discloses not only that Husserl believed that feeling-intentions can be true or false, but also that he accounted for their truth or falsity by applying his standard theory of truth. I show that he affirmed that one realizes the correctness or incorrectness of a feeling-intention when an intuitive feeling-intention fulfills or frustrates an empty feeling-intention. I develop this account by examining the Logical Investigations and Studies Concerning the Structures of Consciousness.
Thomas Byrne is a PhD candidate at the Husserl Archives at KU Leuven. His research interests concern axiology, phenomenology, semiotics, philosophy of arithmetic, and ancient philosophy. He is currently completing his dissertation, entitled, “Husserl’s Logical Investigations Reexamined: A New Orthodox Interpretation”. He has recently published on Husserl’s early semiotics and philosophy of arithmetic in Studia Phaenomenologica, Husserl Studies, and the Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology.
