S., Canada, Britain, Northern eire, and Israel.

This direction on good judgment and thought of data fell precisely halfway among the book of the Logical Investigations in 1900-01 and concepts I in 1913. It constitutes a summation and consolidation of Husserl’s logico-scientific, epistemological, and epistemo-phenomenological investigations of the previous years and a tremendous step within the trip from the descriptivo-psychological elucidation of natural good judgment within the Logical Investigations to the transcendental phenomenology of absolutely the attention of the target correlates constituting themselves in its acts in principles I.

What follows makes an attempt to synthesize Husserl's social ethics and to combine the subjects of this subject into his better philosophical matters. bankruptcy I proceeds with the speculation that Husser! believed that every one of lifestyles might be tested and lived through the transcendental phenomenologist, and hence motion used to be no longer anything which one did remoted from one's dedication to being philosophical in the noetic-noematic box.

Example text

As one critic put it, cannot one's home also be used as an office? When, for example, I wrote earlier in this chapter, "There cannot be two worlds,"81 was I not making a statement about something nonlinguistic and using language to represent? The first problem with these rejoinders is that they embody an equivocal sense of "language" that is ultimately fatal for coherence. From the perspective being developed here, language (read "events of languaging") is (are) constitutive, which, as P. "82 On this view, features of human worlds do not first exist and then get spoken or written of; they come into being in talk.

But a conversation analyst would respond by repeating the argument outlined earlier against the efficacy of word-by-word or sentence-by-sentence analysis and for the claim that more is revealed in these instances of language by attending to the molar rather than the molecular units. Moreover, most conversation analysts would not treat the larger units as signifiers and thereby get caught in the search for signifieds. Instead, the claim might be made, for example, that the overlap as a whole is a notable unit, because all three talkovers are interruptions of the female by the male.

But hopefully without belaboring the obvious, let us ask whether the language displayed here appears to fit the description of the nature of language offered by those who characterize it as a system of signs or symbols functioning representationally and instrumentally. Several of the concrete nouns in these examples appear to be accurately described by the symbol model. "Bicycles," "campus," "people," and perhaps "year" could conceivably be thought of as language units that label, signify, represent, and in some cases even name objects or events in the interlocutors' nonlinguistic worlds.
