On Husserl’s Concept of Inner Time Consciousness

(Original title: K Husserlovej koncepcii vnútorného časového vedomia)
Filozofia, 60 (2005), 3, 170-175.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper deals with one of the most fundamental elements of phenomenological theory of knowledge – the constitution of inner time consciousness. It provides a basic introduction into certain parts of Husserl’s research, as we can find it in his lectures Phenomenology of internal time-consciousness edited by M. Heidegger and E. Stein and published in 1928. Using concrete examples of some perceiving acts (e.g. listening of a melody) the author demonstrates an intentional analysis of perceiving acts in general. The author comes to the conclusion, that the descent of time is grounded on a conscious activity – intentional focusing – of cognitive subject. Time „does not hang“ on „objectively“ temporal objects.
