Example text

When it is a question of a thing, the intentional object always The Saturated Phenomenon 27 exceeds its intuitive givenness. 21 What keeps phenomenology from allowing phenomena to appear without reserve is therefore first the fundamental deficit of intuition with which it endows them, without appeal or recourse. But the phenomenological ‘‘breakthrough’’ postulates this shortage of intuition only as a result of metaphysical decisions—in short, Husserl here suffers the consequences of decisions made by Kant.

I will begin by relying on Kant. In Kant the metaphysical definition of possibility is stated as follows: ‘‘What agrees with the formal conditions of experience, that is, with the conditions of intuition and of concepts, is possible [mit den formalen Bedingungen der Erfahrung . . ’’1 Surprising here is the intimate tie that Kant establishes between possibility and phenomenality: possibility results explicitly from the conditions of experience. Among these conditions is intuition, which indicates that experience takes the form of a phenomenality, that experience has a form (‘‘formal conditions’’) precisely because it experiences sensible forms of appearance.

It should be noted that ‘‘empty’’ elsewhere returns to the concept, and that intuition here does not even have any further right to its ‘‘blind’’ solitude—since it is true that here the form of intuition is reduced to a third nothingness. (d) Finally, nothingness can be taken as nihil negativum. As an ‘‘empty object without concept,’’ it would seem to be defined by the failure within it of the concept and not of intuition; likewise, as ‘‘the object of a concept that contradicts itself,’’ it would seem to admit of a purely logical explanation, and not an intuitive one.
