Some fundamental concepts of constitutive phenomenology

Aron Gurwitsch

pp. 151-191

All the preceding discussions which have led us to establish organization as an autochthonous feature of experience and to lay down some fundamental concepts of Gestalt theory were carried out in a psychological setting. Thus far we were not concerned with philosophical problems in the proper sense or with phenomenology. However, it is for the sake of the phenomenological theory of consciousness that we were engaged in psychological discussions. The concept of Gestalt-coherence and other related concepts will be utilized in Part IV in order to advance the phenomenological theory of perception.
