Chapter Summary

In the detailed reflections on the time-consciousness' structure from the 1930s Edmund Husserl inquires the peculiarities of the hyletic sphere, which is crucial in order to understand the relationship between consciousness and the I with regard to the question of constitution. Through systematic and progressive exclusions the investigation reaches the sphere of the immanence of consciousness, in which both pure perceptions, that give immediately evident givennesses, and such perceptions, which refer to the transcendent appearances, live together. The hyletic originary structure of time-consciousness plays a decisive role also in the constitution of nature. The concept of "core" assumes in this context a strategic significance, because it activates from the inside the totality of the consciousness' shape. Each level of constitution of the stream has its fixed core. On the one hand it develops itself with an internal coherence around it, on the other it refers to a next level.

Keywords: Edmund Husserl; from the inside; hyletic originary structure; pure perceptions; strategic significance; time-consciousness; transcendent appearances
