As we shall see, both lines of attack are mistaken and rest on a 22 The Transcendence of the World misunderstanding of consciousness and its objects. In fact, the opposite is true. Neither an egoic substance nor transcendent world is required for morality or objects. Although my concern is primarily with objects and the transcendent world, before I can make good either claim, I must first go through an explication of the way objects of all kinds and descriptions make their appearance. CHAPTER THREE The Constitution of Transcendent Objects 1.

The fundamental insight to be maintained is that consciousness is nothing without its objects. Yet it is not the objects, nor are they only from it, but this is how they present themselves. 3. Husserl's Answers To further develop these points, I want to again refer to Descartes for some clues to how the need to evaluate these assumptions about the world has arisen. Before I can rehearse the reactions of Husserl to Descartes, and to his assumptions which lead to the problem with transcendence, I want to begin by quoting what appears to be Husserl's subjectivist answer to the question about our knowledge of the transcending world— it sounds as if he believes in something akin to Descartes' position before the existence of God gets accepted.

The assumption was made by almost all philosophers, witness Thales, Plato, and Descartes, to name a few, that there is a reality transcendent to and foundational for the appearances that I experience. This leads quite naturally to questions about the nature of this reality and how I can tell I have a true and correct description of it. Descartes' line of thinking in the Meditations is paradigmatic and instructive in this regard. Through the method of doubting any The Constitution of Transcendent Objects 33 knowledge about which one cannot be absolutely certain, Descartes "seeks apodictically certain ways by which, within his own pure inwardness, an Objective outwardness can be deduced/'50 This is the project for traditional metaphysics—to seek for knowledge about the nature and existence of the transcendent "Objective" reality.
