Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the chapter on intuition, I work with the Logical Investigations, Dieter Lohmar, Rudolph Bernet, Jakko Hintikka, and others. The investigation goes through the ways in which many different percepts contribute to the intuition of a present object. I observe the perhaps disquieting similarities between the intuition of real and imagined objects. I work through categorial intuition, and provide a schematic account. I do the same for universal objects and for ontological categories, or “orders.” Here, it is of the utmost importance that the reader observe that the entire section is placed under a heading indicating the limits of static methods. That is to say, the static approach here should clearly not be enough to animate the kind of social theory we’re trying to do.
