Abstract

Human subjectivity, on the one end, and the supposed Divine or Absolute Mind, on the other end — within this broad conceptual range logos moves. Be it the former or the latter, the demand of thought or reason is to find structures in the objects of experience, things and events that constitute the world of experience — and putatively beyond. In this swing between, or across, the conceptual polarity — i.e., that between human experience and the projected cosmic — logos lets itself be redefined in the transcendental-phenomenological perspective.

  1. For our purpose here we prefer to leave aside the competing models of Gurwitsch and F011esdal on the interpretation of the noema-object relation.
