Intermonadic temporalization in simultaneous reciprocal awakening

Ichiro Yamaguchi

pp. 295-317

The problem of the infinite regress and the key to the solution of this problem are quite characteristic features in the development of Husserl's analysis of time consciousness. Although I believe the solution is in principle already given in Hua X ("Zur Phänomenologie des inneren Zeitbewusstseins"), Husserl persistently strives to deepen his analysis of this problem. The central concern of his analysis seems to be the proper interpretation of the character of retentional intentionality as passive egoless intentionality. Such an interpretation must continue to maintain the distinction between egoic and egoless intentionality. This distinction leads to the latter distinction between egoic and intermonadic temporalization of the temporal stream of the living present given in the C-manuscripts. The final solution is found in the concept of the reciprocal awakening between the empty shapes of drive intentionality as primal affection and the primal impression (primal hyle) in the process of intermonadic temporalization. This unconscious temporalization in genetic phenomenology can establish a cooperative, but limited relation between phenomenology and neural science.
