    The Kyoto School

  • This unites Husserl's discussion with the ˜content™ conception of intentionality described above: he himself would accept that the matter of an act (later, its ˜noematic sense™) is the same as the content of judgment, belief, desire, etc., in one sense of the term (or rather, in one sense he found in this ambiguous term.
