Type as Experiential Structure from a Phenomenological Point of View

Languages of publication
The article focuses on Husserl’s phenomenological philosophy as an intentional-genetic theory of experience. I inquire into the elementary forms and principle of the organisation of subjective experiences and investigate the concepts of type in the con-text of pre-predicative constitution. I attempt to show how far type, conceived as a con-crete and acquired coherence of homogenous experiences, determines the process of interest-awakening even before higher predicative procedures—such as discursive and reflexive thinking—take place. Following such a path, phenomenology comes closer to the philosophy of life, to the Gestalt theory, and to the psychoanalytic theory of under-standing.
