This is the second one quantity within the sequence of yankee collage Publi­ cations in Philosophy. It, just like the first quantity, strikes considerably past what different books have performed earlier than it. the 1st volume's unique­ ity lay in its bringing jointly essays that explored vital new instructions within the clarification of habit, language, and faith. The originality of the current quantity lies in its gathering, for the 1st time in booklet shape, essays on the interface among analytic philosophy and phenomenology. during this quantity there are essays a few variety of the main seminally influential philosophers between either the analysts and the phenomenologists. Barry L. Blose, for the editors of yank college guides in Philosophy EDITOR'S PREFACE Philosophy necessarily creates divisions and this anthology bargains with what's maybe the principal department in 20th century Western philo­ sophy. the gathering, initially the root for a seminar in com­ parative philosophy which I provided on the American college in 1971 and 1974, used to be sufficiently suggestive to scholars of either traditions to steer me to begin its e-book. the longer term improvement of Western philosophy is much from transparent, yet i'm confident that it'll unavoidably contain a extra open dialog among phenomenologists and analytic philosophers, among the present dominant orientations between either ecu and Anglo-Saxon philosophers. This quantity of essays is out there as an try and stimulate that conversation.

" 14 The consideration of the role of imagination in "intuiting essences" allows us to understand yet another important Hussedian doctrine and shows us the way to a simple parallel in current analytic philosophy. Hussed tells us that, "... " 15 In other words, one intuits an essence (or, I suggest, 'understands a meaning') by considering all possible examples and counter-examples. g. " When he claims that "essences are repeatable," or that, ...

It is equally important to ask ourselves to what extent the differences between the two authors are not so much differences in the concepts of "essence," "sense-thought," but differences in their theories about essences and sense-thoughts. I shall argue that these concepts are equivalent, but that HusserI makes important claims about essences that Frege does not make about thoughts. Notably, HusserI claims that essences are to be "grasped" through intuition : Frege claims that thoughts are to be "grasped" through an examination of language.
